Port Arthur Ghost Tours

Cultural and Theme Tours

Port Arthur can seem a very different place after sunset, full of mystery and intrigue. Join a lantern-lit walking tour to experience the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site by night.

After sharing the hidden side of the convict settlement for more than 20 years, Port Arthur remains Australia’s ‘must-do’ ghost tour experience.

Rich storytelling and pathways through darkened ruins and heritage buildings reveal bizarre occurrences during Port Arthur’s history, baffling and alarming convicts, soldiers, residents and many of our visitors today.

The 90-minute tour covers a distance of two kilometres. Due to the limited access through the dark recesses of our heritage buildings, the Ghost Tour is not suitable for people with restricted mobility and is not wheelchair accessible.

Port Arthur Ghost Tours operate after dark every Wednesday to Saturday (except Christmas night). Departure times change throughout the season so check the website for details.

Tours are limited to 20 people to allow for social distancing, so bookings are essential. Why not add a two-course dinner in 1830 Restaurant & Bar before or after your tour? Check out the After Dark Package for details.

Port Arthur Ghost Tours operate in most weather conditions, so make sure you’re prepared for the conditions.



A 90 minute, lantern-lit tour of Port Arthur after dark, the Ghost Tour gives you exclusive nighttime access to the World Heritage-listed historic site. Experienced guides tell stories of the paranormal documented from convict times to modern-day while leading you through some of Port Arthur’s most haunted buildings and ruins.

The tour covers over 2 kilometres of walking and runs in most weather conditions. We do not recommend people with restricted mobility to join the tours. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes, raincoats are recommended in bad weather (umbrellas are not permitted on the tour).
