Goldfields Tourism Network - History and Haunting Tours

About Goldfields Tourism Network - History and Haunting Tours
From the cemeteries of old to the great outback pubs and the infamous ghosts of the region, many areas of the Goldfields have new and exciting guided walking tours hosted by the Goldfields Tourism Network. The GTNA Tours are an adventure for visitors, locals and tourists alike to experience and listen to the tales of how the gold rush began. "The Kal'ghoul'ie Experience", an evening walking tour with tales of spooks and spirits from long-ago, throw in a pinch of history, architecture and quirky stories, that will leave you with a great tale to tell, then indulge with dinner at the well-known Kalgoorlie Hotel that has further stories to tell! For those with an interest in history and some sordid bygone tales the "Coolgardie Cemetery" night walking tour is for you. This historical tour allows you to step back in time to experience the life and times of the infamous and not so infamous characters, the murderers and mining personalities along with the presence of the renowned ghosts of Coolgardie. It seems the Goldfields has had a long love affair with the amber liquid. In the early 1900s, when the Goldfields were in their heyday, there were 93 hotels and eight breweries. Come along for a walk around some of these majestic "Goldfields Historic Pub" on a walking tour and hear where they all disappeared too! Additionally, out of the box GTNA Tours, include the "Ghost Hunts" where you become a paranormal investigator and uncover the not so fleshy identities that still lurk in the historical buildings all over the region and all you need to bring is your sense of adventure.

The tour was excellent and very fun, the tour guild was very knowledgable of the history of the area which made for a spectacular tour. The dinner was also very nice and i would love to do it again. Highly recommend this tour to others.

We explored the Kalgoorlie Town Hall with supplied paranormal equipment. Interesting night, great to see others also bringing along equipment, speakers and cameras. Lots of activity, even though I am a skeptic was a great experience. Recommend a tour with these guys, definitely worth it.
