Featured guest review

'This was the most chilling, entertaining and educational ghost tour I have ever taken! There were no corny 'jump scares' or fakery — just the real deal! Our guide Alison knew her subject well and made sure we all had a great time. She handed out sets of divining rods during the tour so we could contact spirits directly. I found these fascinating and frighteningly accurate! Well done Alison, and thank you. We loved it!' - 921louise (via TripAdvisor)

    Great walk and wonderful views! The stories were scary enough to creep me out but not so much to keep me up at night. Fun!

    The walk itself was OK with a quick-paced stroll around the upper area of The Rocks. Not a good idea for those using a cane or slow walkers as there were a lot of steps. Guide was boring, stories were delivered in monotone with a lot of ums and ahs. He continuously forgot his script and rambled over the stories. We did learn a bit of history but again delivered in such a way that it did not prompt much interest from people on the tour. Most of us didn't expect to see a real ghost but you do expect some enthusiasm from the person telling the stories. I won't be recommending this tour.

    We took our teenage granddaughter on this tour and Alison was our delightful host. It was great walking and weaving our way through the historical streets of The Rocks. Lots of ghost stories shared which my granddaughter absolutely loved. If not for the ghosts, this tour is just simply worth it for the historical viewpoint. It is a completely different atmosphere at night. Going into the underground house/well was also a highlight. This is a tour I would do again just for the atmosphere of the group and the actual walk.

What You Can Expect

Immerse yourself in a side of the New South Wales capital’s history that is rarely spoken of on this small group Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour through The Rocks precinct. This after-dark walking tour, led by an expert ‘ghost host’, will leave your spine tingling and your hair standing on end as you hear tale after infamous tale of events that have shocked Sydney and supposedly doomed those responsible to haunt the Harbour City forever.

You’ll meet your guide and fellow ghost busting guests at the historic Observer Hotel. As you set off through the darkened cobbled streets, your guide will provide entertaining and engrossing commentary about Sydney’s darkest chapters, and the extraordinary phantasmal phenomena associated with the oldest part of the city.

Throughout this Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour you’ll hear recounts of unsolved murders and mysteries involving the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Dawes Point, Atherden Street, Susannah Place and the Orient Hotel. You’ll visit the hangouts of the notorious Rocks Push street gang of the late 1800s, and see the sites of former opium dens and sly-grog shops. You’ll navigate the dark maze of shadowy laneways, secret passages and empty backstreets — or are they…

With a relaxed pace and lots of stops along the way to hear stories from your ghoul-obsessed guide (and no doubt check over your shoulder!), this highly entertaining and informative Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour provides a very different perspective of the Harbour City.
