Old Surfers Paradise Ghost Tour. Discover the epicentre of excess and indulgence on a ghost tour of old Surfers Paradise. Peel away the glitz, glamour and showgirls of the past to reveal a dark, seedy undercurrent of greed, gluttony and betrayal and the ghosts that still linger in Australia’s favourite playground. Southport General Cemetery: Visit the place everyone is dying to get into, the Southport General Cemetery. Discover why Joab was struck down by lightening, the mysterious "Mr Brown" found dead at the cemetery gates and Australia's very own mermaid. Move along unmarked graves, body snatchers and murderers. The ground is bursting with 5,000 stories waiting to be told. Be warned, it is bad luck to visit a cemetery at night...and the coast's oldest ghost is still on the prowl.

Wow.. What a great night. If you looking for that something a little bit different and that gives you goosebumps all over and the occasional uneasy feeling then this is for you. The tour is also filled with history and fascinating stories. The hosts Shane and Kimba are very friendly and welcoming. They provide diving rods and EMF readers which... More

A good night run by a friendly fun professional team. Staff were engaging with all of us on tour and gave us time to answer a load of questions. The tour was not rushed and even went slightly over. More theatrical but remains a great night visiting some places that provided presence. Staff knew their facts historically and paranormally. Pricing... More

Lantern Paranormal Ghost Tours offers several paranormal tours at various locations. Attended a tour at the old Southport General Cemetery. The host was very knowledgable and I learnt a lot about the history of the cemetery. Was interesting walking around the site and learning about it. Took many photos with many unexplained images caught plus captured an EVP. Excellent night... More

Shane, who conducted the tour was a very friendly and spoke clearly. We visited several places of interest around Surfers Paradise. The pace set for the walk was easily managed. The only problem with the tour was that it was too short. Also it rained during the tour but as it was warm being wet didn't seem to matter. Good... More

My siblings and I, 17+ years (4 of us) wanted to do something festive for Halloween this year. We'd come from a viewing of Paranormal Activity and were not so sure what to expect. The Guides Kimba and Shane were friendly, approachable, entertaining and had a wealth of knowledge of the cemetery and in general of paranormal activity. I enjoyed... More

My husband and I have been on many ghost tours in Australia and around the world. This tour was refreshing because tour guide insisted people consider scientific explanations before assuming there was a ghost. Good to get some history of surfers paradise but a little bit hard to be scared in the bustle on Saturday night.

We had a great family night out on the Cemetary ghost tour. Our Cavill Street one was cancelled and the Tour company were very accomodating and placed us on another tour with no hassles. The Guides Kimba and Shane were very friendly and their local knowledge was excellent. They were also mindful of our 12yr old daughter and commentary was... More

This turned out to be a very entertaining evening. The tour guides kept up an interesting dialogue throughout the tour. My teenage son didn't get bored and was engaged throughout. We enjoyed the tour probably more than we were expecting given some of the feedback, an interesting evening that is somewhat out of the ordinary for the Gold Coast.
