Venture through the grounds of this horrifically haunted Sydney spot on a special All Hallow’s Eve ghost tour
The historic grounds of Q Station are spooky at the best of times. Even in the sensical light of day, the halls where sick convicts were quarantined before entry into Australia – and where many perished – can send a chill up your spine. So you can imagine that creeping through the dorms on Halloween, with the graves of 572 unfortunate souls peppering the grounds, would be a considerably more intense spook-fest.
That’s exactly what you’ll be doing on the Halloween Scream tour. Prepare for a solid 90 minutes of goosebumps and jumpscares as the moon rises and you’re guided through the site that’s one of the most haunted in Sydney. Perhaps you’ll encounter the strict matron that’s said to patrol the ward to this day, or bump into a more playful spirit. Your guide will be in character (we assume a terrifying figure from days long past) and even though we can’t ensure spectral sightings, a few creative surprises are definitely on the cards.
This tour is only for adults or kids over 15 accompanied by a parent. If you do have a brood of little Halloween demons, there are also more family-friend tours happening at Q Station in the lead-up to the scariest night of the year.
