We did the sleepover tour, but don't plan on sleeping.It would have been nice to get some sleep after the tour, ghost hunting and challenges, particularly if you have to drive home. Unfortunately they kick you out and you have to be gone by 7am so no time for sleep. There needs to be more information displayed on the internet... More

I was a bit reluctant to go on this tour as I am a big scaredy cat but I went on it anyway and it was very interesting and scary at the same time. I really enjoyed it and our tour guide was great!

Both the wife and I went on the day tour on the 15 april this year and found it interesting and decided to do the ghost tour that night. On the way in the wife said that she was having second thoughts but we still went ahead with the tour. I had not felt anything during the tour until we... More

We did a night tour and whilst we throughly enjoyed it we found a few things lacking that stopped us from coming back to see the asylum in the day. Would have liked to see some of the rooms set up as they would of been back when the asylum was operational and for there to be some more information... More

We had a great night. Alex's storytelling and historical background information made for an enjoyable night. And a little scary for my teenage daughter and her boyfriend. Well worth the visit.

Did both the day and night tour, was held by different guides but unfortunately a lot of the information overlapped so it would be good to see either a generous discount if one does both tours (paid just over 100 for two people), or a bigger dichotomy between the tour content and experience. Interesting stories and fun to walk around... More

I'm not really a ghost tour fan but my husband is so we booked this one. We had a group of 8 plus our guide Bronwyn who was dressed in period costume. The tour goes for approximately 2 hours and goes into many of the rooms in the asylum. Bronwyn's knowledge was amazing - she had answers to every question... More
