Ghost Tour – The Spooky side of Sydney Private Tour

The Rocks Trip Overview

Head to The Rocks these days, and you’ll find a smart, vibrant Sydney neighborhood packed with fancy restaurants, cool rooftop bars, art galleries, and independent shops. But those historic streets that attract so many visitors hide a darker past too… one full of grisly deaths, shocking crimes, and all sorts of shady goings-on.

Take a step into the city’s underworld on this evening tour in the company of a local host who will let you into some of the secrets that lurk behind one of the city’s most vibrant and buzzing neighborhoods. In the city’s early days, this was a place where convicts first arrived on boats – so it’s no surprise to hear that it soon turned into a den of shady activity, disease, and dodgy deaths.

On this one-and-a-half-hour Sydney walking tour, hear stories of those darker days, as you visit the sites while the sun sets. Hear about the hideous murder that took place around Cadman’s Cottage and learn about the shady practices at the first working morgue.
