Ghost tours in Sydney

Prepare to be spooked by historic ghost stories and paranormal activity around one of Sydney's most popular areas.

Sydney has more haunted stories than you think. Most of these ghost tours lead you through The Rocks telling tales of convicts, murders and hangings. Others take you to one of Sydney's most haunted spots, Quarantine Station, for paranormal activity that will scare even the non-believers. Other ghoulish sites include Gladesville Mental Hospital, Darlinghurst Gaol and Studley Park House.

We picked out our favourite tours for all ages so the whole family can hear Sydney's scary tales of the past.
