Ghost Night at Old Government House

Enjoy a candlelit tour of Old Government House, Parramatta and hear stories of strange happenings experienced by volunteers, staff and past guests.

Enjoy a spooky evening exploring Old Government House – if you dare! These tours have run for many years and guests always enjoy. Tour this Georgian house by candlelight. Imagine the people who once walked these halls. Hear stories from staff, volunteers and past guests of unusual happenings. Learn of our colonial past.

This is truly a unique – and often times creepy – way to experience this World Heritage listed property and learn about the people who once lived in this house. This tour will help to bring history alive and will appeal to people with an interest in history who want to see a different perspective. It is also a fun way for a group to enjoy a night out.

At the end of the tour enjoy a light supper of tea, coffee and something sweet and reflect on your experiences with other guests. This is your chance to describe any eerie or unusual encounters you may have had while on the tour.
