What You Can Expect
With its ruins and remote location, spooky Port Arthur is tailor-made for ghost tours. The ghoulish stories you’ll hear date from 1870 to much more recent times -- more than 2,000 paranormal experiences have been encountered in almost 25 years of ghost tours held at Port Arthur. Chances are, you might be next to come face-to-face with a ghost at this poignant and tragic site!
With only the light of lanterns to guide you -- and the shadows of eerie ruins looming at every step -- it’s easy to feel the presence of souls long gone. Hear tales of disembodied voices, ghostly footsteps and apparitions as you visit approximately half the historic site, taking in the 19th-century penal settlement buildings and grounds.
At the end of the tour, safely returned to the bright lights of the visitor center, you’ll receive a Certificate of Bravery and Courage as a reminder of your spine-chilling tour of one of Australia’s most haunted sites.
Our accommodation was a short walk from the Historic Site so we decided to walk along an unlit path beside the water to the site to get us in the mood. As we had possums and other creatures scooting across our path it put us in the right frame of mind for the Ghost Tour. Scarry!!!! Our tour guide was most informative nad also set the mood as she had a head full of blonde hair and wore a full length dark leather coat. She also spoke in a voice that would not be out of place in a Hitchcock movie which all added to the experience. Once you add a chill in the air the experience was complete. Well worth the effort.

Such a beautiful place with an equally horrible history. Not a believer in ghosts or the supernatural but interesting to see the prison at night; eerie.
