Norfolk Island is invariably listed as one of the world's most haunted islands.
Exploration, adventure, agony, and obsession - in every step.
A lantern-lit tour through the historic streets of the Kingston World Heritage site brings this island's troubled past to life, a place where the macabre and spine tingling tales of murders, suicides, and hangings come to life.
Bring an open mind and come with us beyond the boundaries of the known.
Hear the bizarre and turbulent stories, the terrifying tales of mischief, malice and mayhem, as you are led by your local ghost-host through the olde town on a spine-tingling lantern-lit ghost tour.
Double-dare you to follow me...
There are a number of accommodation houses on the island reputed to be haunted. We are happy to recommend one to you... However we are never too sure whether it's good for business or not.
The iconic UNESCO World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthur's Vale Historic Area on Norfolk Island is a site of universal significance. It is the story of forced mass migration, eventually convict transportation to the Australian colonies would be acknowledged as another form of slavery. The Island's British penal settlement is a testament to its dark and turbulent history, opened as a place of 'extremest punishment short of death' this is a place which cannot help but be haunted by its troubled past.

In accordance with industry standards we also have a no-show no-refund policy.

With the very best of intentions and the best planning sometimes unforeseen circumstances arise which are beyond our control. We reserve the right to change tour dates times and inclusions where necessary and cancel or re-schedule tours in the event of inclement weather or hold events indoors when necessary.

We always try to re-schedule but in the event that a tour is cancelled alternative arrangements may be offered and where no alternative is available (or suitable) we offer a full refund.

All group cancellations must be submitted in writing. We think this is fair and we hope you understand.
