Sydney Ghost Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After meeting your guide in The Rocks, starts your ghoulish walk in the mists of time, when this neighborhood was home to sailors, prostitutes, sly-grog shops (where cheap liquor was sold illegally), opium dens and many nefarious characters. Notorious gangs such as the Rocks Push and the Razor double-crossed their victims and rivals, sometimes going as far as murder. Hear the tales of unfortunate souls whose ghosts are rumored to roam the streets as your guide leads you through their spooky stories and former haunts.
    As you walk through the darkened streets, your guide reveals theories about lingering mysteries and unsolved murders that have perplexed investigators for decades. Discover how sites such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Susannah Place, Dawes Point, Atherden Street and the Orient Hotel are connected to one another through these tales.
    Expect to stroll at a leisurely pace for about one mile (1.6 km) during your tour, with frequent stops for photo ops. After an eerie evening of ghost tales and possibly some sightings, your tour ends when your guide returns you to your starting point.

    I have been to several ghost tours around Europe and in them one gets to know more about the area in which the ghost tour is held. It gives a lot more than just the brief ghost stories without context that we were given on...More

    We love doing ghost tours - but we expect to learn a bit more about the general history of the place; we expect an entertaining story teller to guide the tour; and we expect full focus on the tour group. Lantern Ghost Tours failed to...More

    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...More
