Port Adelaide Ghost Tour - National Railway Museum



By Far, The Creepiest Port Adelaide Ghost Tour you will find, but one with a Difference... YOU get to be the Ghost Hunter!

Join us on the spookiest tour through our locomotive history and see if ghostly energies of the past still remain within the carriages and walls of this incredible museum.

Brief History
The National Railway Museum was originally part of the Port Adelaide Station or Port Dock Railway Station as it was known back in its early days.  Where the museum now sits was the good sheds and working area of the Station.  The Station itself stood where the police headquarters are now located.  The Port Dock was opened in 1856 and operated until 1981.  It was the original line in South Australia.

The museum, originally at Mile End, was relocated to Port Adelaide and opened in 2001.  It now holds an impressive collection of locomotives, carriages and the 19th Century original 1856 Goods Shed

Why would a train museum be haunted and why would we want to go there?  Well how about these five reasons for starters:

  • 1.  A dark shadowy figure seen regularly at the Museum

  • 2.  At least 21 reported deaths at the station and goods yard.

  • 3.  The steam locomotive that was involved in Australia's first terrorism act.

  • 4.  The area that drops in temperature and feels decidedly unfriendly.

  • 5.  Objects moving and phones that ring when not plugged in.

The Ghost Hunt
Join us on a hunt for the Port Adelaide National Railway Museum ghosts!  The night includes:

1. A tour around the museum, learning about its ghostly tales and it's deaths, including the sad tale of a 16 year old boy who befell a terrible accident.
2. Complimentary tea/coffee, while listening to EVP and learning about the equipment.
3. Break into teams and, with equipment, explore the darkest recesses of this museum in the search of paranormal activity.
