Have you ever been on a tour where there were just too many people to hear the guide, or get to ask a question?
Did they go too quickly or were there people on the tour that really just weren’t into it?
Well this one is all about you and what interests you most. We love ghosts and tales of hauntings, we are passionate about investigating and we would love to talk to you about what we know and what our experiences have been. This is the perfect tour to really get into the subject without too many people to stop you asking all of those questions you have been dying to ask!
Participant numbers are a maximum of 6 people but its totally OK to be booked by two people who want a private tour.
Although we cannot go inside any of the sites we explore (no entry into any buildings on the tour) we focus exclusively on the East End of Newcastle, visiting a number of ‘haunted’ places with a long history going back to the convict era.
This three hour tour allows participants to have more time at our chosen sites, time to be really personal and focused on you and what your questions are. Your guide will share stories and experiences from places including the Convict Lumber Yard, Newcastle Gaol, Hospital, The Hill and Christ Church Cathedral burial ground.
Included is a copy of Newcastle Ghost Stories, a compilation of spooky tales from Newcastle and surrounds as well as a voucher for a 10% discount at the Oz ParaTech store.
Spend a unique night out in Newcastle that guarantees that you will never look at the old streets of the East End in the same way again.
Are there ghosts that still linger in the city?
There could be – we cant guarantee an encounter – but keep your eyes, ears and mind open and just maybe they will grant you one.
Who may like to try these tours?
If you have never done a ghost tour and want to experience something not too scary – Tales from our Ghostly Past is perfect for you. This tour is run in the same way as most of the advertised ‘street style ghost walks’ that you will find world wide. The walk is slow and paced without too much difficulty and runs in most weather conditions except heavy rain.
If you are visiting Newcastle and want to find out more about our convict history and really immerse yourself in a unique experience this one is for you too. Don’t expect to see a ghost but do expect your guide to do their utmost to fill you with enough spooky stories that will leave you wondering whether one may just be lurking around the very next corner.
If you are after something a little more intense, personalised and guarantees you are not part of a large group try our East End Dark History and Ghost Walk. Three hours can sometimes extend to three and a half, we will make sure that you are not rushed and all of your questioned are answered. After all, we live and breathe gh Tours run on dates advertised or by special request and are available most nights of the week. Don’t be shy – Just call on 0411 357519 to see if we can arrange something to suit you.
A percentage of all of our tour charges goes back to the community!
We continue to make generous donations to help with the immense expense of keeping these historic sites in order and well maintained for our enjoyment and for that of future generations.
