What You'll Get
Meet your guide at Britomart Station in central Auckland. Start your 2-hour ghost walking tour behind the building and hear about the history of Auckland, from Maori warriors to the colonial establishment of the city, followed by stories of World War I, the influenza pandemic of 1918, and more.
Follow on foot down dark alleyways to a number of historical locations and see Auckland's original shoreline. The route continues to a few murder sites including the location of the Short Street massacres, which resulted in an all-out brawl between servicemen after WWII. Arriving at the Queens Ferry Hotel, stop for snacks and drinks (own expense) at New Zealand's oldest pub, established in 1865. Here, step into the hallowed halls and narrow staircases leading into the Gin Room.
Then carry on to the site of New Zealand's first prison, where prisoners were buried into the building's foundation. Shiver to bone-chilling tales of the former justice system and its public hangings. Search for the ‘Grey Ghost' at the majestic Civic Theatre, revisit the 'suitcase murder' at Albert Park, and learn the sinister secrets of a prominent Princes Street hotel and a local milk company. Your tour ends at the site of the Auckland Lunatic Asylum, famous for its experimental treatments.
