Cockatoo Island, Sydney, NSW

From reported ghost sightings to spine-tingling ‘felt’ experiences, Cockatoo Island – a former convict prison and dockyard – has a history of paranormal occurrences that stretches back more than a century.

Find out for yourself with Cockatoo Island’s after-dark Ghost Tour! Led by a knowledgeable guide, you’ll search for ghosts in historic (and, some would argue, haunted) buildings, rarely open to the public. Wielding a K-II EMF reader and a pendulum (devices used in paranormal detection), our guide will test your mettle with hair-raising paranormal tales and macabre true stories, including grisly murders, botched prison escapes and episodes of gang violence.
