Skeletons, scandals and secrets will be spilling out of the closet when you join us at dusk for a special spooky night tour of Cockatoo Island’s hidden histories and mysteries!
Bring the whole family, or come alone if you’re game, on this 90-minute nocturnal exploration of the convict workshops and gaol, the grain silos, dry docks, Dog Leg Tunnel and Biloela House (our very own haunted house, some say!).
With its early colonial beginnings as a prison from which there was no easy escape, to reformatory for orphans and wayward children, then working shipyard for more than a century, no wonder Cockatoo Island is haunted by its history...
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there’s no question that Cockatoo Island at night can be eerily atmospheric. Be on the lookout for strange sounds, sights and sensations – people on previous tours have reported seeing spectral figures, feeling sudden gusts of air, and even smelling tobacco smoke!
