Birthday Ghost Tours

With lanterns in hand, you will follow your guide on a mysterious journey behind locked gates into areas normally unavailable to the public. You will step into the shadows and learn secrets & stories of The Rocks heyday. See haunted sites as your guide takes you along cobblestone lanes, and join in with group activities and discussions. You will learn about some of the people who were murdered in the colonial past, who killed them and why, and about the larrikins of the era. This is not for the faint of heart. Some of those tormented spirits can at times be still encountered, so keep your wits with you!

Teen / Kids Birthday

With the emphasis on fun, but just enough spookiness, kids and teenagers will love this birthday tour. Our black hat and black cape wearing Ghost Host will enthrall the group with stories, legends and actual events that occurred at various sites in the historic Rocks area of Sydney. Props will be provided, allowing everyone to dress up and roleplay some of the infamous characters that left their indelible mark on the area’s history. Much laughter and screaming will be had and, as well, the kids will gain a knowledge and understanding of The Rocks unique past. Our host can accommodate up to 30 on this fun hour and half birthday adventure through The Rocks. Included is a complimentary Gift Bag for the birthday boy or girl. Times can be arranged to suit.

The Rocks Ghost Tours

"We took our 13yo daughter and 9 of her closest friends on this fright night and it was excellent. [...] Lachlan found the perfect level of spookiness for our group but it was the history of all the places we went to that I really enjoyed the most. If you are looking for something a little different to do this is it, every building we went into was for our exclusive viewing and we saw parts of Sydney some of us (including those who had grown up here) had never seen! Would highly recommend this tour"

"Ghost Host Phil was the most outstanding Ghost Host we could have asked for. It was my sisters (Rosie) 21st birthday and even though we weren’t on the birthday package, he made her feel as if the tour was for her.He allowed her to do the “spooky” things of the tour and [...] even stopped the group at one point to show the photo Rosie took of the Ghost on the stairs.The tour was made really special because of the efforts Ghost Host Phil went to, to ensure Rosie had an amazingly spooky ghost adventured day"

"I thought my teen daughter was crazy when she asked to have her 16th birthday on a Ghost Tour. We had the best time with Ghost Host Rowan. Rowan stories & interactive role play with the Teens was fantastic, even us adults had a great time. Highly recommended for parties."
