Twisted Histories offers a variety of experience to interest the firm believer or the most hardened skeptic. Our two hour Aradale Ghost Tours ($35) are packed with bone chilling tales of the early years of the Asylum, the hardship face by patients and staff, the reputation and folklore which has slowly collected about the estate. On our Paranormal Investigations, running for either two or three hours ($50/$70), you will be equipped with an array of detection equipment and explore a variety of creepy locations to try your hand at ghost hunting.
Our tours run EVERY Friday and Saturday night. Bookings and payments are taken in advance- we do not recommend 'showing up on the night' as tours are regularly full. Please ask about concession or family rates.
Ghost Tours and Paranormal Investigations are also available as Sleepover Events, running monthly.
Large group bookings (15+ people) for families, schools and businesses are welcome for weeknights- why not organise a birthday, staff social event or celebration with a twist?

We did the 6 hour tour on the 2nd July with Jasmine & there were 11 people on the tour. It was so fascinating being able to communicate with the spirits, got some great responses when using the equipment from the spirits. Jasmine was an awesome guide taking us round to different buildings that we hadn't been on the shorter tour. Using the equipment to communicate was great. Will plan to do another 6 hour paranormal investigation soon. Well worth coming to Aradale.
We went on the extended 4 hour tour last night. I personally think the large group was too big for this type of tour. Not only was it our group, but there were several on the property at the same time, which made it extremely hard to hear, see, or get into the vibe. Our guide, who was very knowledgeable about Aradale just didn't have the tools to capture the audience and convey the stories.... something that will come with more experience. The 4 hours became very repetitive and due to covid was mostly outdoors. A few suggestions for those who are about to embark on a tour..... wear enclosed shoes, take plenty of water (even a small insulated bag with some) along with a snack, and..... the most important item to take... BUG SPRAY. The mosquitoes were horrendous!
