Full description
Be incarcerated in Australia's longest continuously operating gaol. Discover the ghost of Governor Ashton, whose body was dropped through a window, Sister Mary MacKillop's link with the Gaol and the spirit of South Australia's most sadistic killer still stalking his prey. With 45 hangings and a burial site in Murderer's Row, it's no surprise more than 12 spirits haunt the 147 year old building.  Your evening includes a ghost tour with the opportunity to make contact through paranormal investigation tools.

    Enjoyed learning the history. Found the size of the group (25), was distracting as some did exactly what they wete told not yo do eg videoing while the guides were talking, some were very loud. Found the guides to be very automated in their presentation and felt like they really didn't want yo be there

    Great experience. The 2 guides were very informative on past history about the goal. I was there with 3 other family members. When we had our cell lock - ins we experienced paranormal activity it was truly rather chilling. Highly recommend this tour. Thanks for the tour guys.

    Hubby and I thought this was a ghost tour where they would scare the bejesus out of you and have a good laugh, but it was a tour trying to connect to spirits. No spirits were around so it was pretty flat. In saying that though, looking through the jail, hearing some tales of the,prisoners and history was great.good value.
