Paranormal Investigation Experience

Join us for a Paranormal Investigation Experience at Port Arthur

Port Arthur Historic Site is believed by many to be one of the most haunted places in Australia, as the many thousands who have experienced our Ghost Tour would probably agree. Brave souls who need more than a story and want the opportunity to do some ghost hunting at Port Arthur can join us on our exciting  adults-only Paranormal Investigation Experience.

Our Paranormal Investigation Experience allows visitors to conduct their own paranormal investigations with the assistance of ghost hunting equipment throughout various buildings at the Port Arthur Historic Site.

The experience

Our experienced tour guide will brief participants on use of the test equipment prior to leading them out onto the Site to explore and take readings. Buildings visited include the Commandants Cottage, Separate Prison, Visiting Magistrates House, Parsonage (reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in Australia) and our Church.

The Paranormal Investigation Experience allows participants to take readings and measurements and provides the opportunity to judge for themselves whether the ghost stories are true. The tours will also contribute valuable information to our extensive database of paranormal activity.

The details

Each tour is limited to just 12 people and the investigation experience lasts approximately three hours.

Accommodation nearby is recommended; the Port Arthur Historic Site’s staff can arrange accommodation bookings on your behalf – please enquire when making your booking.
