Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour

Back to historic Sydney. A time when prisoners were the norm, it was customary to have public executions and the Rocks Push ruled the street. Explore the overrun slums with mass burial pits, sneaky grog haunts, opium dens, and ghosts searching for their loved ones and vengeance on those who crossed them.

Itinerary

After meeting your guide in The Rocks, you’ll embark on a ghoulish stroll through the mists of time, when this area was home to sailors, prostitutes, sly-grog shops (where cheap liquor was sold illegally), opium dens, and a slew of other sinister characters. The Rocks Push and the Razor, for example, were notorious for double-crossing their victims and competitors, even to the point of murder.
Sydney Ghost Walking Tour
As your guide takes you through their spooky stories and former haunts, through Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour, hear the tales of lost souls whose spirits are said to wander the streets. Your guide will uncover hypotheses about lingering cases and unsolved killings that have perplexed police for decades as you walk through the darkened streets.

Through these stories, learn how the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Susannah Place, Dawes Point, Atherden Street, and the Orient Hotel are linked to one another. During your tour, you can expect to walk at a leisurely pace for around one mile (1.6 km), with frequent picture stops. Your tour concludes when your guide returns you to your starting point after an eerie evening of ghost stories and probably some sightings.
