My friends and I recently did the Murder Tour in the Beechworth township and we absolutely loved it! Our tour guide was a lot of fun and very informative. We had a really great time. Thank you Beechworth!

Bronwyn was AWESOME! She was soooo patient with my son (and husband's :) ) many MANY questions and she was very respectful of my wish for a non-ghost tour. She gave us a wonderful tour of the place and never rushed us -- she made us feel very special and was very sympathetic when I broke down in tears seeing... More

We went on the 10pm tour and our tour guide was Craig - he was excellent. We picked the perfect time to go - a freezing cold, foggy night. It was great to gain an insight into how 'lunatics' were treated back years ago compared to now. Craig told us some great stories and really built up an eerie vibe.... More

This place was cold, massive, dark and quite spooky. Had a blast. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. And the stories were great at making the hair on your neck stand up. Just don't turn out the lights.

I elected to participate in a ghost tour one Saturday night during May 2014. Terrific decision. Ticket cost $30 for a 1.5 hour tour from 8pm. The night I decided to go couldn't have suited the occasion better, slightly chilly and foggy to add to the eeriness. I had a female tour guide called Alex who put on a terrific... More

We were staying at the Mayday Hills Aslyum in the hotel there so we thought we would go along to one of the Beechworth Ghost Tours. Having seen the buildings during the day, it made it even creepier on the night when we showed up with 20 odd others to take the tour. The tour guide was dressed for the... More

My husband and I did this tour two years ago and it was great, so we were very much looking forward to bringing his parents from England along this time. We booked over the phone and were told we had to pre pay by credit card, unlike last time where we paid cash on the night. The tour was slow,... More

I went a couple of years ago with a friend. The section for the criminally insane made me feel quite sick. The building near the previous section made me feel ill especially where they used to bath the patients. The hall where they took you down to a cellar , I heard singing. Highly recommended. Felt very sad for patients... More

Really looked forward to this experience but although our guide was very well informed, the words went over the heads of some of our older group members. They were spoken much too fast and often directed to the floor. Not that we didn't have fun-it was but it could have been so much better. History wise, extremely informative.

We did the 830pm tour, the tour guide was great and made things a bit more eerie with his stories etc. I would have loved to have been able to see it during the day also, but apparently its only open at nights for the tours.
