Event description

Description

History buffs and paranormal enthusiasts alike should get a thrill at the regular St Bartholomew’s Historical Tours at Ponds Road, Prospect.

The church dates back to 1841 and its cemetery contains the graves of many early settlers including explorer William Lawson. According to tour guides, there is one troublesome ghost at the site and tour participants have claimed to have been unable to move when they’ve approached his tombstone, while others have complained of nausea.

Immerse yourself in this tour as the guides recount stories about the lives of the people buried there. Lucky tour participants may even get to meet them!

The St Bartholomew’s historical tours are held bi-monthly on Saturdays, from 7.30pm during summer and 6.30pm during the cooler months. The cost is $23 and includes light refreshments.
