Lithgow Ghost Tour Eskbank House and State Mine Museum

Creep back to Lithgow after dark for the spooky version of the Eskbank House & Museum and Lithgow State Mine Museum tour – if you dare.

Your host Paranormal Pete has extensive knowledge of paranormal activity in the area and will lead you to the scene of dark myths and gloomy legends where ghosts are dying to meet you.

Experience the only ghost tour in Lithgow and take morbid glee in the uncanny and unseen with hair-raising access to unique, forgotten and secret locations that are off limits to the general public after hours.

This tour includes fascinating local history, myths, legends and nerving-jangling ghost stories.

Listen to unsettling reports of ghosts, hauntings and other strange goings on at Eskbank House & Museum before taking part in a ghost hunt in and around the buildings.

Catch a glimpse of what life was like for the colonial well to-do at the property, which played a significant part in Lithgow’s industrial era. You may even meet one of the long dead for real.

Immerse yourself further in the sorrows of history with a visit to Lithgow State Mine Museum, where Marion in the Hologram will tell emotional stories of hardship endured by miners and their families.

Ghost hunting equipment will boost your already heightened senses as you tune in to phantom whispers around the sites.

Any spooky shenanigans will be detected by the ghost hunting equipment supplied on the night: EMF meters, Ovillus 111, full spectrum video, night vision video, Talker 11 and Patrick Boo Buddy Bear OR bring your own handheld equipment.

Paranormal Pete will also add another eerie dimension to your supernatural soiree when he conducts experiments with a new device Thermal Video/camera & EchoVox. Creepy!
