  • Pentridge Prison: 1.5-Hour Ghost Tour with Special Access

    1. Pentridge Prison: 1.5-Hour Ghost Tour with Special Access

    With 44 bodies buried on-site and a who’s who of Australia’s criminal underworld having called Pentridge home, it's no wonder the facility is haunted by its past. Get access to buildings closed to the public as your personal ghost guide takes you on an eerie 2-hour tour for adults only. Enter the site and begin your tour of Pentridge Prison, D Division, built in 1850. The first prisoners arrived at the prison in 1851, and it was officially in 1997. Learn about the dark side of Australia's most famous prison. Ronald Ryan was the last man executed at Pentridge Prison, and in Australia. He was hanged in D Division at 08:00 on 3 February 1967 after being convicted of the shooting death of a prison officer during a botched escape from the prison. Later that day, Ryan's body was buried in an unmarked grave within the D Division facility.

    It was a great experience, especially on a cold winter's night. Highly recommend it!!!
