Cockatoo Island Ghost Tour (18+)

Concert or Performance

25 Jun 2021 to 26 Jun 2021 Weekly Event

The Sixth Sense. Paranormal Activity. The Conjuring. Ghosts continue to captivate the public imagination, satisfying our primeval desire for a good scare but supernatural encounters aren’t just the stuff of Hollywood.

From reported ghost sightings to spine-tingling ‘felt’ experiences, Cockatoo Island – a former convict prison and dockyard – has a history of paranormal occurrences that stretches back more than a century.

Find out for yourself with Cockatoo Island’s after-dark Ghost Tour (18+)! Led by a knowledgeable guide, you’ll search for ghosts in historic (and, some would argue, haunted) buildings, rarely open to the public.

Wielding a K-II EMF reader and a pendulum (devices used in paranormal detection), our guide will test your mettle with hair-raising paranormal tales and macabre true stories, including grisly murders, botched prison escapes and episodes of gang violence.

Whether you’re a sceptic or a believer, scare-proof or easily spooked, one thing’s guaranteed our Ghost Tour is a unique way to experience the darker side of Sydney.

PLUS: Are you a film buff or horror hound? Dare to try our Overnight Fright package! After the Ghost Tour, we’ll screen a horror film for you in our Convict Cinema. Plus, you’ll get to spend the night in our waterfront campground pleasant dreams, happy camper.
