Old Tailem Town Ghost Tours: South Australia’s Most Haunted Ghost Town!

Book now and let us guide you on the scariest tour in what is by far the most haunted ghost town in South Australia… Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village, that is according to the many visitors who have experienced chilling activity here on our Old Tailem Town Ghost Tours.  This is definitely not for the faint of heart!

Why would it be haunted?  After all, Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village is a recreated town built as a tourist attraction.  Try over 100 original relocated buildings, some of which date back to 1890 and were peoples homes once.  Then there are the 1000’s of antiques that reside in these buildings, and finally, the several tragic deaths that occurred on the property itself throughout its history.

Everything from solid shadow figures seen, the feeling of being touched and unexplained emotional changes, certainly make this tour even more intriguing and challenging… and not just for our guests!

We have been researching and investigating this pioneer village for a decade and now wish to share with you, stories of the creepy, the unsettling and the downright disturbing things that happen here. And this is through the daytime … just wait until it gets dark!

Why would a tourist attraction, like Old Tailem Town, be haunted?

Try the fact that many of these buildings are original and were people’s homes once, with most being over 100 years old. Some even date back to the 1890s.  When a haunted house is moved on the back of a truck… does it leave the energy behind, or does the energy come with the walls? It would certainly seem that some of the buildings do seem to harbour something a little more disturbing.

Of course, there are also the seven deaths associated with the property itself… including the tragic death of two children.  We only discovered the first through a mindblowing event that happened in the church one night.  That event will stick in our minds forever and was caught on video.  If you upgrade to the 4hr Ghost Hunt, we show this footage during our coffee break.

So join us on our Tailem Town Ghost Tours, as we guide you through some of the buildings that now reside at the Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village…. after dark!

Tailem Town, what an experience! Even though I went in semi sceptical there was enough there to make me rethink about paranormal. Thoroughly recommend taking the tour, or the hunt like we did 🙂
