your experience

By day, the former prison is an interesting historical site in its own right, but as the darkness sets in, the Port Arthur Historic site thrums with an echo of its eerie past. Join the 1.5-hour after-dark tour to uncover the chilling history of this UNESCO-listed former prison that has documented sightings that go back to 1870.

As the lantern lights your path, you will explore the darkened ruins and historic buildings associated with the site. Along the way, your guide will tell you intriguing stories of the unexplained events that mystified the former convicts, settlers, and the soldiers who lived here. With more than 1000 deaths at the site during its tenure as a convict site and rumors about departed souls that never truly left, this tour is perfect for the lovers of all things paranormal and surreal.
