After sharing the hidden side of the convict settlement for more than 20 years, Port Arthur remains Australia's "must do" ghost tour experience.
Some stories last more than a lifetime
Darkness falls and a hidden side of historic Port Arthur emerges. This is a different place after sunset, full of mystery and intrigue. Flickering lantern light draws you close to hear tales from long ago.
Rich storytelling and pathways through darkened ruins and heritage buildings reveal bizarre occurrences during Port Arthur's history, baffling and alarming convicts, free settlers, soldiers and today's visitors alike.
Listen to first hand accounts of prisoners and soldiers that will resonate in your mind long after the lantern dims at the end of the night.
Real people's stories
Black-cloaked tour guides vividly recount real people’s documented stories of sightings and unexplained occurrences of the past.
180 years of stories
With its sometimes violent, sometimes cruel European history dating back to 1830, Port Arthur is a unique place where spine tingling tales make a memorable impression.
One of Australia's most haunted sites
Almost two centuries of documented sightings and reports of paranormal activity make Port Arthur's after dark atmosphere intense. Truth or myth? Either way, the silence and soft glow of the lantern can make those long-gone seem very close at hand.
Port Arthur is located at the southern end of the Tasman Peninsula, 90 minutes’ drive or 95 kilometres south-east of Hobart.
Ghost Tours operate every evening except Christmas Day, and are about 90 minutes in duration.
Are Ghost Tours suitable for children?
This depends on the age and 'stage' of your children. Ghost Tours are popular with older children. If your child is very young, very active or tends to suffer with nightmares, then Ghost Tours may not be suitable. If your child is disruptive to the tour, your guide will request that you leave the tour.
