The Rocks Ghost Tours concentrate on the more macabre and exciting things of the night. Many of these stories have been pieced together by locals and historians with information handed down through the generations. These are stories you won’t read on Wikipedia, and the tour will give you experiences you won’t get on a regular Sydney city tour!
In many ways, The Rocks is something of a time capsule of early European life in Australia, and is one of the most unique of Sydney’s history tours. Much of The Rocks sandstone architecture is relatively unchanged from when it was built over 200 years ago. With that comes the original spirits and ghosts that wander unhindered through their familiar haunts. This is no Luna Park sideshow. There are some genuinely creepy stories involving The Rocks. When you experience these, you will feel the truth of the matter.
During Covid group sizes are limited to 18.
You can also book an exclusive private tour. For groups of up to 18, you can experience the macabre history of The Rocks with your best friends. No-one need miss out on learning about Sydney’s colonial past, and in the privacy of your own group we can tailor the tour starting time and duration to suit your needs.
For larger groups you will be split into groups of 18 to keep within the Covid social distancing rules.
Along with that first settlement came a new colony where a good majority of the residents never wanted to be there. Often, their lives so traumatised, many stories have arisen of the haunted ghosts that still linger, seeking absolution, forgiveness… and other things that spirits seek. These stories have been handed down through the generations of locals families to us. This is no ‘ghost train’ ride, it is a genuinely creepy tour where the truth can be more chilling than any carnival attraction.
We regularly cater for groups as diverse as team building, school excursions, birthdays, hen’s nights, halloween parties and more.
Whatever your needs – we can accommodate.
