90 minute walking tour around the alleyways, & inner laneways of Launceston.The main tour is a Ghost Tour which does incorporate some adult stories of rape – hangings & murder. These are true stories, they have been handed down over generations. We have purposely tried not to embellish them in any way other that to portray “The Facts”.

I know a lot of people enjoy this tour. I was a little disappointed with the Ghost walk.I am very open minded about ghosts and even toyed with not going as I thought I may feel unnerved by the end. I feel it may depend on who takes you on the walk. There was no real atmosphere or information with... More

Last night we went on the ghost tour with our fabulous guide Bethany. As promised it was creepy and spooky and cold and my teenage daughter and I are convinced we saw something! Bethany was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed the walk, lovely to do at night, exploring laneways, spooky rooms etc. The guide was a great story teller, and shared some history and stories of the early days, very knowledgeable.

A great insight into Launceston's history during a nice walk around Launceston at night. Bethany was informative and entertaining and went to a few spots and rooms where there could likely have been some ghosts - definitely get that vibe. Take a camera, open your mind, take it foir what it is and have some fun - you will not... More

This was an interesting tour and we went into a few buildings during our walk around Launceston and heard the history of quite a few old buildings. You are walking for up to 2 hours with some uphill but nothing too strenuous. We had a great guide who told the stories really well and with no lights on which elevated... More

I have to recognize that I don't believe in ghosts, but I was expecting an interesting and theatrical tour around the city at night, encountering different characters that would explain dark stories of the city... Instead, we entered some dark private properties (the basement of a pub, a garage...) and walk to different locations, and were told stories of supposed... More

My family has been on many ghost tours (including Edinburgh vaults and ghost tours across UK) but this one was very unique and certainly the best we have done in Australia (matched only by Port Arthur ghost tour). Our guide was well informed and told the stories well. The last stop was very creepy and I captured some amazing photos... More

The Ghost tour was a good way to spend the evening for my family. The lady was a good story teller. My wife & my son (11yr old) were scared but my daughter & I were not. It seems that part of the aim of the tour is to enjoy the mysteries of the dead. Hearing these accounts of romantic... More

We only had a day to spend in Launceston and this ghost tour came in very handy for evening entertainment. Our guide Kerry told us some great spooky stories of people and buildings in Launceston. Probably not suitable for younger children. We had a few children on our tour and most of them got quite frightened. The parents ended up... More
