Monthly Tours

Take a historic BUT haunted ghostly walk through Wollombi this Winter!

Situated half way between Sydney and Newcastle Wollombi is a leisurely  1 &1/2 hour’s drive filled with historic sites steeped in convict and early settler stories and almost every building has a ghost story just waiting to be told. During this ghost walk you will hear stories dating back to the early days of Wollombi.

Tales of yowies, spirit lights and ghostly horse riders.

We meet at Myrtle House Cafe ( see pic above) where you can start your night with dinner from 5pm or grab a quick hot coffee to keep the chill away before we start at 6.30pm.

Your guide will pick you up at Myrtle House front steps for a night time walk through the Village.

Spend time at the local cemetery with your torches checking out the headstones and pay respects to those buried there as we lay a flower at some of the gravesites then follow your guide back to the Wollombi Museum – hear about some of the bushrangers that spent time in the cells and check out if the museum exhibits might be haunted!






We DO require 4 people minimum to proceed with the tour!

Tours are available every Wednesday and Thursday evening during winter.

Cost is $45 (plus sticky tickets fee) per person

 Ghost Hunting 101 is the newest after dark activity to be unlocked at the Gaol and is back in 2017. Take the next step in ghost exploration with this two hour masterclass.

Have you been on ghost tours and looking to step up to the next level? Then our Ghost Hunting 101 nights are perfect for you. There is no better place to learn about and try ghost hunting equipment then at Maitland Gaol.

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.

We are now also adding something for the more experienced investigator with ADVANCED GHOST HUNTING. This night is double the time – double the experiments – double the spookiness!

Our special guest investigators Oz Para Tech will be bringing along some of the newest gadgets on the market.
