New tourism attraction in Port Arthur, Australia: Ghost hunting

Chills and Thrills for Paranormal Tourism.

The Minister for Tourism, Scott Bacon, today welcomed the exciting new late night, adults-only Paranormal Investigation Experience operating out of Port Arthur.

“The Paranormal Investigation Experience will begin after the ghost tours finish and last about 4-5 hours and includes a supper mid-way through the investigation,” Mr Bacon said.

“Through the course of the evening the guides will lead the participants into a number of buildings around the Historic Site which have a reputation for ghostly occurrences.

“Those involved in the tour will then be able to set up the instruments and make observations and readings.

“The Port Arthur Historic Site is believed by many to be one of the most haunted places in Australia, so I have no doubt that those interested in this sort of activity will have a ‘wail’ of a time,” Mr Bacon said.

The first Paranormal Investigation Experience will run on Saturday February 25, 2012.

Ghost tours have become quite popular in the last couple of years as “paranormal tourism” has grown into something people actually do. This Paranormal Investigation Experience will give tourists the chance to do some real ghost hunting, like you see on TV, which admittedly isn’t a lot really. I bet they will be bored.
