History of The Rocks Ghost Tours
In 1994 Brian & Colleen Harrison decided to reveal the gruesome bizarre stories buried in The Rocks. These stories were passed down through the generations of Brian’s family who had run boarding houses in The Rocks for over 150 years . Together with his wife Colleen, they embarked on creating The Rocks Ghost Tours.
Over the years many customers have reported strange phenomena, sent photos and related many ghostly experiences to the Ghost Hosts.
We approach the future with enthusiasm for our company and our aim is to write a book with the untold ghost stories of The Rocks.
Brian and Colleen were long term residents of The Rocks and collected many of the stories. Richard & Wes the new owners continue the tradition of the company.
The company, has a long history of conducting tours. 18 years ago they started with students studying History.
Fifty years ago the seed for the Ghost Tours of The Rocks was sewn. Brian listened to many stories about local murders, suicides, unusual happenings and ghost stories told to him by his parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who all ran local boarding houses in The Rocks.
There are a series of tours from Corporate tours through to Hens Ghost tours. The Rocks Ghost Tours operate every evening or by prior group tour arrangement.
Journey through haunted houses, where shadows creep through narrow alleyways and courtyards. Discover how a haunted past has created the spirits of today.
