As you visit iconic landmarks, including the UNESCO World Heritage listed Convict Precinct, our knowledgeable guide will share stories and anecdotes that paint a vivid picture of the island throughout the ages. The Group History Tour is a great sightseeing activity for Probus and other groups, including seniors, families, tourists and historical societies.
Our Group History Tour is available in a 60-minute or 90-minute format....
The 60-minute tour is suitable for groups with less mobile members as it is tailored to only cover the lower island. Meanwhile, the 90-minute tour expands the experience to include a walk to – and exploration of – the upper island.
[Note: Bookings are subject to guide availability and must be made at least seven (7) days in advance of the tour date.]
The tour contains stories (and may contain images and/or visuals) of deceased people.
The tour involves a steep incline and some uneven surfaces, and it is not suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. A moderate level of fitness and mobility is required.
Suitable walking shoes, wet weather clothing (if needed) and a torch (phone flashlights are adequate).
Booked tours will proceed regardless of weather conditions except in the event of extreme weather.
Ahead of your visit, we encourage you to read the terms and conditions for this tour.
Our tour program has changed to ensure compliance with the NSW Government’s COVID-19 public health orders. Our weekly tours, including Haunted History, have been put on hold until further notice; however, we are accepting on-demand tour bookings for groups of up to 15 people.
