Join Newcastle Ghost Tours as they take you into Copeland Tops State Conservation area on a ghost hunt like no other.
First up is a visit to Gloucester Museum where you’ll see historic artefacts and learn about life during the gold rush. Silent vigils with your guides will reveal if some of the museum pieces can attract spirits and if some are still possessed with the energies of their owners.
Then venture out to Mountain Maid gold mine, deep in the forests of Copeland Tops. Explore the historic relics by torchlight and discover where the miners stayed overnight in the last years of the mine’s operation. Get up close and personal with the machinery at the mine and see if you can hear the ghosts call out amongst the overgrown tracks.
