Maitland Gaol



 Ghost Hunting 101 is an after dark activity at the Gaol and is back in 2018. This is a perfect first experience for anyone interested in ghost hunting who would like to test themselves at a site known as one of the most haunted places in NSW.

Please note that this is called GHOST HUNTING 101 for a reason!

We start with the simple basics, so you’ll try out using K2 meters and voice recorders before having time to do some investigating of your own. You’ll experience a vigil, and an era cue as well as have time to chat about your experiences and discuss ghosts, poltergeists and residual and intelligent hauntings.

This night isn’t about scaring you – it is though, about giving you a taste of how investigations are often conducted.

As usual, we cant guarantee that you will see or hear anything, but we KNOW this place is spooky and filled with loads of legends, urban myths and real stories of ghostly encounters.

Maybe this will be your first time to experience something truly spooky.

You will encounter those who have never been on an investigation before so please be prepared to share the site with others.

This is a 2 hour investigation and is usually scheduled on the first Friday of every month.

For all bookings you MUST go through the Maitland Gaol web page:




We have heard you! This is for those WHO HAVE DONE INVESTIGATIONS!!

You want an more intimate experience and you want to be able to be with super serious investigators!

We have created a very special 4 hour night for you at the Gaol. PLEASE BE AWARE that we cannot supply this event with SMALL NUMBERS as we are contracted by the Gaol so expect up to 20 people on this investigation night.
Please do not complain or tell us that there are too many people at the Gaol. If you wish to have a night with only 10 or less you will be paying more than double the price. We do it this way or we don’t get to do this at all. 

This night will give you more free time, more time to create your own experience with the assistance of our team of investigators from Newcastle Ghost Tours and Oz Para Tech.

We will start the night with a briefing to find out what you want to do and help those that want it – but also leave you to explore on your own in open areas of the Gaol.

Our experienced investigators will be there on hand to assist you and challenge you.

The Paranormal Experience is available: JULY 27th 2018

Group numbers are limited to 20. Bookings are essential.

All bookings must be made by contacting Maitland Gaol on 02 4936 6482  or head to their webpage and book online.
