I don't like being scared but this ghost tour was eerily wonderful. the tour guide was very authentic but not too OTT. a highlight of my trip to Tassie !

Very well maintained, guides know a lot to information. Could easily spend a whole day if not more here looking around by yourself.

Tour was good, Domenic did a good job.

Thought it felt quite quick.

For some reason we had a really flatulent group... and have to be honest, having like three random people not known to each other letting rip during the tour and quiet moments kind of really killed the mood. It was the weirdest thing ever.

Our tour kicked off at 8:45pm and finished at around 10:25pm. The guide was brilliant with eery stories of the past mixed with some humour and some more recent experiences.

I wonderful extension to the day time tour.

I highly recommend sticking around for this experience. You’ll be looking over your shoulder on the drive home!

We went on the ghost tour in March. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a lot of interesting stories to tell. We did the daytime ghost tour which went for around 2 hours. There is a lot of walking involved. I didn’t see any ghosts but the place has a lot of history and somewhere worth visiting for the historical value. It was not always easy walking and some of the paths were uneven and steep but if you are physically fit and can do the 2 hour walk I would definitely recommend it.

Dear Susan G,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your recent experience. As our guides mention it may not be on the day that you feel something as part of the ghost tour but there may be a moment you will be reminded of the tour long after leaving the site. We are pleased you found the tour enjoyable and would recommend it. As you mention it does involve a lot of walking including some uneven grounds. We suggest our visitors check with our team when booking to ensure they will be comfortable and gain the most from the ghost tour experience.
Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time onsite also.
Kind regards,
Port Arthur Historic Site
