Come, if you dare, on a night-time stroll through the haunted corners of Sydney that contain mysteries with a supernatural twist. Your informative guide leads you on a 1.5-hour walking tour around The Rocks district, the site where Sydney was founded and a place full of spine-tingling stories and legendary ghosts. Historical events hold the keys to some of the paranormal phenomena, which include hauntings and ghost sightings that your guide explains in fascinating detail.
  • 1.5-hour ghost walking tour of Sydney at night
  • Stroll through the haunted corners of The Rocks and nearby locales
  • Learn the history of Sydney’s former slums, mass burial grounds, sly-grog shops and opium dens
  • Explore foreboding tunnels, alleys and other creepy spots
  • Enjoy entertaining narration from a knowledgeable guide

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is a fun twist on a typical walking tour in Sydney’s most historical neighborhood.
After meeting your guide in The Rocks, starts your ghoulish walk in the mists of time, when this neighborhood was home to sailors, prostitutes, sly-grog shops (where cheap liquor was sold illegally), opium dens and many nefarious characters. Notorious gangs such as the Rocks Push and the Razor double-crossed their victims and rivals, sometimes going as far as murder. Hear the tales of unfortunate souls whose ghosts are rumored to roam the streets as your guide leads you through their spooky stories and former haunts.

As you walk through the darkened streets, your guide reveals theories about lingering mysteries and unsolved murders that have perplexed investigators for decades. Discover how sites such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Susannah Place, Dawes Point, Atherden Street and the Orient Hotel are connected to one another through these tales.

Expect to stroll at a leisurely pace for about one mile (1.6 km) during your tour, with frequent stops for photo ops. After an eerie evening of ghost tales and possibly some sightings, your tour ends when your guide returns you to your starting point.

This started well but it was Australia Day and when we were distracted by the fireworks I felt our guide lost patience and the tour ended early. There is plenty of walking and much uphill which I was happy with but would not suit everyone.

Our tour guide did not show up due to having an accident which understandably was not their fault but despite having a contact number it was difficult to find out why we left wondering what had happened. Once alerted the company apologised but unfortunately we did not get to go on the tour.. I hope our tour guide was ok and makes speedy recovery.
