Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour

Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour with Adelaide Haunted Horizons

Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour – The Adelaide Gaol Just got a Whole lot Darker!

Not only can the Adelaide Gaol be intensely creepy during the day, but it turns a whole lot darker and much scarier at night, especially on our Adelaide Gaol Ghost tour!  If you add stories from our paranormal investigations, intertwine them with some dark history of the building and its inhabitants, end the night with our famous (or should it be infamous) Lockdown, then 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.  It appears she still has a few surprises up her sleeve yet!

Our team will guide you through on the Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour, where experiences are almost commonplace.  You will be introduced to how the Gaol operated in the past, especially the darker history of executions and look at whether this has an impact on the ghostly sightings today.

Visit the gallows in the hanging tower.  Stand where the condemned would have stood on the trapdoor before plummeting to their death at the end of a rope… and what of those that went wrong?  Could this explain the sometimes strange and often angry happenings in there?

Walk through our graveyard, affectionately known as ‘Murderers Row’, and meet some of the 45 executed prisoners who still remain within the precinct of the Adelaide Gaol, and a couple who may even remain in more ways than one.

Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour - New Building

What Have Others Experienced on the Adelaide Gaol Ghost Tour

  • Full bodied apparitions (sightings so intense that some are convinced they are real)
  • Dark shadowy figures that seem to watch the tour from the shadows.
  • Encounters with our ‘top dog prisoner’ who was murdered, including reports of men being pushed around by forces unseen.
  • Disembodied voices and sounds from times gone by and EVP captured on recording equipment.
  • Physical touching sometimes gentle… sometimes not so much!

Our tours are also renowned for our famous (or should that be infamous) lockdowns to finish with.  What will you discover during those 10 minutes in a dark cell by yourself?  Maybe see if you are comforted by an unseen prisoner during Lockdown in the New Building … if you dare enter on your own!

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!!!
