Event Description

The Harbour Trust presents Ghost Tour (18+) – a guided journey into Cockatoo Island’s supernatural realm.


As you search for ghosts and explore historic buildings rarely open to the public, our guide will share macabre true stories and hair-raising paranormal tales, including reported hauntings.


Feeling brave? Book our ‘Overnight Fright’ package (details below)! After the tour, we’ll screen a horror film in the Convict Cinema and you’ll spend the night in our campground.
