- Lantern-lit guided walking tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site by night.

What to Bring:
- Practical walking shoes.


Valid for 01APR17-31MAR19:
Join a lantern-lit walking tour to experience the Port Arthur Historic Site by night. Port Arthur can seem a very different place after sunset, full of mystery and intrigue. Unlike many other ghost tours around the world, visitors on this Ghost Tours have exclusive access to the World Heritage listed Site, so the atmosphere won't be shattered by crowds or traffic. Are there ghosts? Truth or myth? Either way, the silence and soft glow of the lantern light can sometimes make those long gone seem very close at hand.
Tour covers a walking distance of about two kilometres on moderate grade terrain.
