The Murder tour of Beechworth is a great way to see the sordid history of the town. Our guide Sergeant 2nd class Sinclair really entertains you the whole time. You immediately step back into the past with him and enjoy the historic diabolics. Need to book for this one but well worth it.

Thanks Alexander, you made this tour for me, I went under duress at the request of my wife and ended up having a ball. An eerie place at night the history and stories provided by a guide who had actually worked there made this a great tour. Recognition of the appalling treatment of yesteryear and some truly sad incidents provided... More

My daughter wanted to go so I just went along for the ride. Our guide , Alex, was brilliant. None of the people in our group were as they say 'receptive' but it was still a spooky, fascinating and highly entertaining thing to do. Right up there with the best tours I have done. Thoroughly recommended.

Although some of the tales are quite depressing, the tour itself is excellent. We had a very committed guide who clearly loves his work. I have done several ghost tours through Europe and of course Port Arthur. This was on par.

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
