Spooky ghost tours in Hobart and Battery Point

Shared by |tags, , ,

you love all things spooky, ghoulish and downright scream-worthy, you won't want to miss out on a ghost tour during your next trip to Hobart or Battery Point.

Ghost Tours of Hobart and Battery Point has been in operation for more than eight years and promise to bring you a spook-tacular experience by only taking guests to "genuinely haunted sites".

Led by brave guides (known as the Boo Crew), you have the choice of two spine-tingling adventure walks encompassing the scariest locations in Hobart and Battery Point.

The dramatic Hobart route takes you right through the heart of the city's historic CBD, where you'll be regaled with ghost stories from the city's past and present. Guests are even invited to bring along their own cameras or video equipment so you can try your hand at ghost photography.

Alternatively, you can sign up for the Battery Point tour, which takes in the classic buildings in this iconic waterfront suburb – and reveals some present-day spooky surprises too.

Battery Point tours depart on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights from The Bakehouse, an iconic 24-hour bakery situated in Salamanca Square. If you are travelling in a large group, you can also arrange for special Battery Point tours on Monday and Thursday nights on request.

The Hobart tours also depart from The Bakehouse on Sunday nights and occasionally on Wednesdays too. This tour is a recommended option for those who have walking difficulties or require a wheelchair, as the Battery Point route involves stairs and a hill.

Bookings are essential on all tours – you can reserve your place online, over the phone or by dropping by The Bakehouse in Salamanca Square. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and discounted admission is available for groups of more than 20 adults.
