Event description

Immerse yourself in bone-chilling experiments as we endeavor to establish a connection with lingering spirits trapped behind the ominous razor wire...

The night will feature carefully crafted experiments utilising paranormal investigation techniques, seeking to unveil whether restless spirits yearn to communicate with the living.

During your free time, explore the accessible corners of the gaol in the eerie stillness of the dead of night, pun intended.

With an almost two-century-old history, this grim and exceedingly atmospheric prison, constructed in 1837, stands as one of the oldest surviving jails in the country, holding secrets that may send shivers down your spine.


The historical Old Parramatta Gaol was home to thousands of convicts after first opening its doors.

During the 19th Century the prison was used for men and women, and was a back up for inmates from Cumberland Asylum, or those who were deemed Criminally Insane.

Following the outbreak of the First World War, the prison was transferred to the Cumberland Asylum, as most of the men in Australia were overseas fighting in the great war.

It returned to civilian use in 1922 and from then on was a major industrial prison.

It closed its doors for the final time in 2011.

Ghosts and Spirits

There have been many reports of ghostly figures sighted at this imposing location, however due to the many deaths and harsh treatment suffered by Men, Women and even Children here; this should come as no surprise.

People are frequently grabbed, whispered to, have their hair pulled or their bottoms grabbed. It has had some intense doppelganger audio phenomena and full bodied apparitions have been sighted. You may also hear somebody walking behind you, only to realise you're the last person into a wing...

Parramatta Gaol is truly one of the most foreboding and terrifying buildings that you will ever see, with a past so gruesome inside this incredibly haunted building, who knows what the night ahead may have in store in for you!
