Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons Ghost Tours

Cultural and Theme Tours

Guests describe our multi-award winning tours as the scariest ghost tours in Australia. But at Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons, we believe in delivering more – ghost tours, ghost hunts and history tours that will amaze you.

We operate from some of the (dare we say it) most haunted venues in the State, and we proudly keep it very real – no gimmicks, no dress-ups and no theatrics – If something happens, you can be sure it’s not us!

Join us on a 2hr Tour, where we share real-life encounters and personal experiences that will leave you believing that reality is indeed stranger than fiction!

Ghost hunts (paranormal investigations) are a great opportunity to access locations after dark. We offer a four-hour tour/paranormal investigation combined or a three-hour investigation only, to go searching for paranormal activity with state-of-the-art ghost hunting equipment (supplied)!

Not into ghosts?

Join a ‘Dark Side’ or ‘Murder & Madness’ tour, where we journey into a darker side of our history. Murder, mystery and ghostly tales – Adelaide has it all. Who said history was boring!

And just what has been seen by the daytime volunteers … on many occasions?

The Adelaide Arcade has long been famous for her ghostly activity, often reported by cleaners, security guards and even shoppers. Maybe it is not surprising with a history of murder and tragedy, including the gruesome accident that befell her caretaker in 1887.

We are the official ghost tour operators of the Adelaide Arcade, with exclusive access to the old haunted tearoom, under the Arcade.

What tragedy befell the Beadle in 1887? The details will definitely make you cringe!
What is the connection between the Arcade, murder and the Adelaide Gaol?
Did a young mother kill her child or was it a tragic accident?
Did this child speak from the grave and answer this question? Listen to the audio and judge for yourself!
