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!
There are two routes our evening walking tours take. There is the Dark North tour, and the Dark South. They have the same general make up, but take different routes to different locations and accordingly have different stories. We run them on alternate nights, or if we have more than 30 people on one night we will split the group into north and south and send them off with a host in each direction. If you specifically want to do one or the other, get in touch and we’ll advise which might be the best evening to come.
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.
