Ghosts of the Port Walking Tour

  For some months now, my wife Karen and I have been working on a project for the City of Port Adelaide Enfield Council, a spooky ghost tour. The aim is get people back to the Port, hear some spooky stories, and learn some of the history of this amazing South Australian historical location.

 The following is from the  City of Port Adelaide Enfields Councils Website:

 Port Adelaide has a long and storied history, rich with intrigue, mystery and ghost stories.
The City of PAE has developed ‘Ghosts of the Port, a’ self-guided walking tour, researched and written by Australia’s most recognised paranormal investigator Allen Tiller.
Allen is the star of Syfy’s hit TV show, Haunting: Australia. He has been investigating the paranormal for over ten years right across Australia and is known for his unique and historically

factual approach to ghost hunting.
The guide includes a detailed history of 13 different haunted locations across the Port and their ghosts, including the Civic Precinct, local pubs, Lipson Street, the Lighthouse and more.
Allen has also created three short videos on key haunted locations in the Port which we will be sharing in the coming days. Today, learn all about the opera singing ghost in the old police cells which is now the Visitor Information Centre.

Why not head along to the haunted Visitor Information Centre during opening hours to pick up your free map and guide book, then go for a walk to investigate the ghosts of the Port for yourself! View the map here www.portenf.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?c=51325

So if you're into Spooky Things, the paranormal or just like to take a walk with a difference, this is the tour for you - and best of all, it's free!
 Just head on down to Port Adelaide during business hours and pick up a "ghosts of the Port Walking Tour booklet from the Port Adelaide Visitor Information Centre and go for a spooky walk about the Port, read about a Guardian Angel, A ghostly Madame, spirits of children...and learn what "crimping: is!!
