St. Helena Island Ghost Tours

You have been sentenced to spend an evening at the St Helena Island Prison. The nature of your crime?


You will be subjected to a hearty meal. On disembarkation, you will march to the dramatic ruins where in the spooky gloom you and your co-conspirators will experience the colourful stories of those who never left the island. Then prepare yourself for the unexpected at the island’s cemetery.

On your release from St Helena Prison partake of a delicious dessert and join in a sing-along or just sit back and enjoy the nightscape. Any other night out is dull by comparison!

An island rich in – often bleak – history

Standing as a maximum-security men’s prison for more than six decades, St Helena Island offers an experience that stands apart from any other historical tour in the state or even the country. In operation from the mid-1860s, the buildings of the prison have remained in remarkably good condition, offering visitors the rare chance to get up close and personal with pre-Federation life, crime and punishment.

While a joy to history buffs of any interest, the island is also an excellent choice for anyone with an interest in horror the macabre. The partially-ruined barracks and workhouses of the prison create an unsettling atmosphere, further enhanced by stories of prison life and death from our skilled and talented performers.
