What lies beneath the old bluestone men’s quarters? Find out on an evening ghost tour at Eynesbury Homestead, the historical grand country home of the Staughton family.



Spend an evening doing time at St Helena Prison on Queensland’s most historic island.  Explore the cemetery and hear ghostly tales of imprisoned souls that never managed to leave the island.
