We did the Boggo Road Ghost tour with Mikayla on a stormy Wednesday night. Fun and informative. They provide torches and a book is included in the price.

A really fun place for adults and older children. Lots of steps,so not suited to young children or the aged. Tour is very informative and it's great to hear the history of the place.
