The Sixth Sense. Paranormal Activity. The Conjuring. Ghosts continue to captivate the public imagination, satisfying our primeval desire for a good scare… but the supernatural isn’t just the stuff of Hollywood.

From unconfirmed sightings of ghastly apparitions to dread-inducing felt experiences, Cockatoo Island has a history of paranormal occurrences that stretches back more than a century.

Find out for yourself with Ghostyard – A Paranormal Tour. To expose unseen forces, we’ve equipped your guide with a K-II EMF reader and a pendulum – devices used in paranormal detection.

As you search for ghosts in buildings rarely open to the public, you’ll hear macabre true tales, including grisly murders, botched prison escapes and incidents of gang violence.
