Dress up and discover Cockatoo Island's secrets, scandals, and supernatural forces with our after-dark spooky tour special...

On Saturday 22 October, to mark the spooky season, we will be running dress up editions for our two night tours - Dark Past (all-ages) and Ghost Tour (18+). For one night only, tourgoers will be encouraged to dress up in their spookiest costumes while they step into the paranormal realm with our history and ghost tours. 

From reported ghost sightings to secrets and scandals, Cockatoo Island – a former convict prison and dockyard – has a history of paranormal and spine tingling occurrences. Led by a knowledgeable guide, our tours are also a great opportunity to discover iconic landmarks, including heritage buildings rarely opened to the general public.

Feeling brave? Book tickets, have fun dressing in your spookiest costume and join us as we blend history with mystery!
