Family Friendly Ghost Tours at 7.30pm over summer
Family Friendly Ghost Tours are offered at 7.30pm every night between 26 December – 28 January.
These tours are more suited to families with younger children (under 14) than our later tours. The tour will follow the normal route; however the fright factor is reduced s as it’s daylight and the guides will tone down the content of the stories to make them more suitable for children.
Family Ghost Tours may be booked online via our booking system - use the Book Now button above and select the 7.30pm tour time for the Ghost Tour between the above dates.
Please note - if you do want the full fright factor of a regular ghost tour, please book for a later time.
Some stories last more than a lifetime
Darkness falls and a hidden side of historic Port Arthur emerges. This is a different place after sunset, full of mystery and intrigue. Flickering lantern light draws you close to hear tales from long ago.
Rich storytelling and pathways through darkened ruins and heritage buildings reveal bizarre occurrences during Port Arthur’s history, baffling and alarming convicts, free settlers, soldiers and today’s visitors alike.
Listen to first hand accounts of prisoners and soldiers that will resonate in your mind long after the lantern dims at the end of the night.
Real people’s stories
Black-cloaked tour guides vividly recount real people’s documented stories of sightings and unexplained occurrences of the past.
180 years of stories
With its sometimes violent, sometimes cruel European history dating back to 1830, Port Arthur is a unique place where spine tingling tales make a memorable impression.
One of Australia’s most haunted sites
Almost two centuries of documented sightings and reports of paranormal activity make Port Arthur’s after dark atmosphere intense. Truth or myth? Either way, the silence and soft glow of the lantern can make those long-gone seem very close at hand.
The original and still the best
After sharing the hidden side of the convict settlement for more than 20 years, Port Arthur remains Australia’s “must do” ghost tour experience.
Ghost Tours operate every evening except Christmas Day.
