Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour

Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour with Adelaide Haunted Horizons

Our Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour can be extremely creepy, especially at night!

Not only is the Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour creepy at night, but add to that, stories from our paranormal investigations, intertwined with some dark history of the building and it’s inhabitants, ending the night with our famous (or should it be infamous) Lockdown, and you know you are in for a good night.

We have been the official investigators of the Old Adelaide Gaol for over a decade and we know what the Gaol is capable of, but perhaps you can help us experience something we never have before.

Our guides will take you through the Gaol where experiences are almost commonplace.  You will be introduced to how the Gaol operated in the past and whether this has an impact on the ghostly sightings today.

Includes looking at:

  • Full bodied apparitions (sightings so intense that some are convinced they are real)
  • The first Governor, who maybe hasn’t quite left the Gaol yet.
  • The ‘Top Dog’ prisoner who may still hang around his domain
  • Which buildings do visitors report extreme discomfort and need to leave.

Our tours are also renowned for our famous (or should that be infamous) lockdowns to finish with.  What will you discover during the dark hours in a cell by yourself?  Maybe see if you are comforted by an unseen prisoner during Lockdown in the New Building … if you dare!

Not into ghosts? We do history and specialised tours. Try our Murder & Madness tour, and follow the journey of some of our condemned prisoners – the executions and the executed, and learn about their stories?

Thanks guys for an awesome night at the gaol. We will definitely be back again for another investigation, or two. Recommend recommend recommend!!!
