Spooky Sydney Night Tour: Ghosts, Myths & Legends

Duration: 2 hours
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, brought to life by a local 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 where people were buried alive. And let's see if you can spot the ghosts lurking as you visit Sydney's second-oldest house. At least the hotels around here are free from such things… or are they? Several stylish international chains and boutique hotels today sit on land that was once riddled with plague, murder, and retribution. Staff, guests, and passers-by all say they've spotted ghosts here – so you'll learn what to keep your eyes open for if you're lucky enough to be staying in the area! If you don't spot any spooks, content yourself with some of the real-life bits of the past dug up at the fascinating Big Dig archaeological site. All Withlocals experiences are customizable private tours, so if there's anything you would like to include or if you feel like adjusting the route a bit, be sure to let your local host know.
