Full description
As the sun sets and the grounds of Port Arthur Historic Site go dark, you will launch into an exciting 90 minute, lantern-lit ghost tour. Follow your expert guide through some of Port Arthur’s more infamous buildings and ruins and hear vivid stories of unexplained events that have baffled and alarmed convicts, free settlers, soldiers and visitors.

More than 1000 people died at Port Arthur during its 47-year history as a penal settlement and some people say that the souls of the departed have never left. Documented ghost stories have been associated with Port Arthur since 1870, adding to Port Arthur’s haunted reputation with people's personal accounts of paranormal activity.
