Full description
Join a costumed ghost host for a 1.5-hour ghost tour of the historic Altona Homestead and surrounds. Complete with its historic courtyard and beautiful old kitchen, Altona Homestead has long been the center of paranormal investigations and mysterious happenings. Meet at the Altona Homestead on Logan Reserve, and be transported back to the story of Alfred and Sarah Langhorne, the first settlers of Altona. Visit the beach where the Patton family tragically lost their lives, and see if you can catch a glimpse of the ghost at Altona’s original hospital. Take in the sights of the Altona murals of the village traders, and then enter the bluestone home of the Langhorne family. Explore each room as your guide reveals the mysteries of their lives. In the lounge, you will hear of Sarah's sadness, while the children's bedroom may offer a glimpse of the ghosts of children. Enter the dining room of grumpy William, and more. Tours run the first Saturday of each month.
