A friend of mine suggested we stop in at Beechworth and do a tour of the asylum on our way to Canberra. I was skeptical at first, but found the place extremely interesting. It was very run down thanks to LaTrobe Uni...however our tour guide, Bronwyn gave an interesting and informative tour. We can't wait to come back and do... More

Our nighttime Ghost Tour experience of the asylum was the highlight of our trip to Beechworth. Our guide Craig/Dr Jones created an excellent atmosphere with dramatic flair and eerie tales of the past. He worked well with the crowd; extremely patient and humourous. The tour was so intriguing that we searched the town for a book on the history of... More

Great storyteller who knew her subject and was able to give a few of the tour group quite a scare. Recommended to-do if you are in Beechworth

Myself and my partner went here on a Saturday night. It was interesting. Would benefit from getting rid of the cheesy "character" tour guides and fake skeletons etc in the waiting room - as the history of the place and hearing about what went on speaks for itself.

The ghost side of things was a little blah, as was the acting. Ignoring that though, for $35 we got a decent walk around, some history. It is worth doing while they still have access to the buildings.

I took my hubby along as a birthday pressie and we went on an 11pm Investigative tour with two other people and had Fiona as our guide. We had experiences from the very start with a spirit claiming to be related to my hubby. Because we were using ghost detecting equipment, we were able to tell when someone was with... More

I have been on a couple of the investigation tours, and am obsessed with this place. Fiona the guide is very knowledgeable and great with calming of nerves. You get what you give doing the tour, and even a sceptic will come away with a feeling of awe from the Beechworth Lunatic Asylum.

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.
