Tour Details

Hear about the historical context for the city’s ghoulish stories throughout this entertaining and informative tour.

Know More about this tour

Make your way to The Rocks neighborhood to meet your guide at the historic Observer Hotel, and then set off on your walking tour through the haunted streets of Sydney.

As daytime the crowds disappear and evening takes over, hidden parts of the city come alive. Listen to the footsteps your group echo off the darkened pavement as your guide takes you back in time to the 1800s, when The Rocks was known as a hangout for sailors and prostitutes. A street gang called the Rocks Push was notorious for robbing and assaulting unfortunate souls.

Hear about ghosts who are said to pursue those who double-crossed them in the past, and listen to stories about the paranormal unrest stirred up in the citys former opium dens and sly-grog shops (where cheap liquor was sold on the sly). Dig into unsolved mysteries and murders that have troubled the city for centuries, and learn how these tales connect to Sydney locations like the Harbour Bridge, Dawes Point, Atherden Street, Susannah Place and the Orient Hotel.

You'll cover a little more than 1 mile (about 2 km) of eerie territory, proceeding at an easy pace with plenty of stops for discussion and photo ops. The tour ends with return to the starting point.

  • This started well but it was Australia Day and when we were distracted by the fireworks I felt our guide lost patience and the tour ended early. There is plenty of walking and much uphill which I was happy with but would not suit everyone.

  • Probably wouldnt recommend this tour but that just my opinion.

  • the tour in itself , as walking tour around this area was great,as we discovered a neibourhood. i would have never walk as a tourist around this way
    the talk about ghost, it was ok for young kids or teens!!!

  • Wonderful experience, definitely worth the money. Lots of history and interesting places around The Rocks we got a chance to see.

  • Our tour guide did not show up due to having an accident which understandably was not their fault but despite having a contact number it was difficult to find out why we left wondering what had happened. Once alerted the company apologised but unfortunately we did not get to go on the tour.. I hope our tour guide was ok and makes speedy recovery.

  • a fun ghost activity to explore with family and friends

  • A great way to learn about the Dark Side of Sydney. Ben, the Tour Guide, was great.
