Full description
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.

    Great, but group was oversized

    I had a great time learning the history of Australian law & order, ghosts and other supernatural activity were second to that. Limited free time to experience anything supernatural and the group size was too big. During the limited free time, the group was overly loud and excessively used their flash/lights. Would recommend opening another wing as what was seen was limited, and if you really wanted to focus on the ghost/supernatural aspect that free time was done in the quiet, with no lights and was extended.

    Foreboding eerie entertaining .

    Really enjoyed this experience I personally did not see any ghostly beings but definitely sensed a foreboding presence perhaps left behind by all the misery and suffering within the walls of D block .The Guides were amazing telling the stories of the inmates twined with history and humor made this a very interesting and entertaining night .

    Just brilliant

    It wasn't a crappy theatrical thing for starters, it was a proper guide telling proper stories. I can't stand that theatrical rubbish which can go with ghost tours like this so I recommend it highly for those who think the same as me. It's a shame Pentridge seems to be obliterated piece by piece. But while the night tour is running, definitely make it a place to see.
