Do you dare to be touched by the ghosts that still haunt Newcastle?




Only the brave scroll down…

Newcastle’s Original Ghost Tour Est 2010


Shhh… Did you hear that?

Mischief, malice, mayhem, murder …The dark history of Newcastle still haunts every corner, alley way and historic building of the second oldest township in NSW, Australia. You can almost hear the clank and groan of convicts working in leg irons  in the underground mine shafts in the settlement.


The poor rations and daily floggings – hopelessness in a ”hell on earth”. You had to be tough to survive…

Tocal Homestead


Investigation Experience

Newcastle Ghost Tours returns to Tocal Homestead after 10 years.

This homestead will leave you amazed the moment you walk through the doors – history and the ghosts of the past residence permeate every corner and you will want to spend time in the rooms trying to make a connection using some of the latest paranormal technology.

What were the two gruesome kills that happen on Tocal in the 1800s – one during a drunken fight between convicts in 1837 and other, that os a nameless headless stockman in 1874.

Lindesay House


Investigation Experience

Lindesay was the first major house to be constructed at Darling Point in Sydney and some of its early residents were very colourful and important members of early Sydney society. Built in 1834-36 it was built for the colony’s treasurer Captain Campbell Drummond Riddell.

Many families came after and added to the house but what, for us may be the most interesting, is downstairs in the oldest areas! Turn off the lights and you can just hear the footsteps, the noise and chaos of the busy household and the energy pushing past you.

Upstairs you will be surrounded by the grandeur that was upper class society – and these spaces certainly offer you a different vibe. 

We invite you to investigate the house with us in crafted experiences both upstairs and downstairs. Does anyone remain to oversee this magnificent property? What shall we discover and find out for ourselves about the early lives of the resident of Lindesay?

Stroud Ghost Hunt


Paranormal Experience

First stop – Stroud Court House. 

As we take up our spots we will see who comes through once we call in the ghosts. Will it be one of the magistrates or a felon? Will the McAskill’s be waiting for vengeance and will they speak to us from their grave as we walk through the gravesite?

Who still lurks in the darkness of Quambi House? Not only does he site hold so many secrets but it is filled with the memories of so many people – are some of the items in the house now haunted too?

Both sites are the chosen spots for us to get hands on with paranormal equipment and do some investigating.

Are these sites haunted with memories of the past? Let’s find out! Will any soul want to reveal stories about themselves? How are the people at the Courthouse engaging so intensely with our participants? Who are these spirits? Let’s ask more questions – Are you ready?
