‘The smart, well-heeled Sydney that you see today was once a place of brothels, opium dens and gangs that dumped bodies in the harbour. Nowhere epitomises the city’s past more than the historic Rocks and it’s here that you’ll join a bone-chilling ghost tour. Your guide will spirit you away to either the northern or southern end of the rocks where you’ll be led down tiny backstreets and eerie alleyways as you hear terrifying tales passed down from locals and historians. Discover the Hero of Waterloo, Australia’s most haunted pub built with convict labour, venture inside the ruins of an old convict’s cottage from the 1820s and keep an eye out for the ghost of Amelia who doesn’t know she’s dead. This is the only tour to have exclusive access to Sydney’s spooky signal station, but the question is, dare you go inside?’
