We travelled up to the Asylum for a tour, we travelled over 3 hours. I thought the Asylum itself had a real haunting nature about it which was great, the tour itself was not bad however the tour guide jumped out and tried to scare...More
Did this tour with Lady Madeleine as the guide who did a terrific job in setting the scene & lots of history, it’s a huge bleak creepy place set out of town & u really feel sorry for all the poor souls who were labeled...More
Went to the 4 hour ghost tour and it was time well spent. A fascinating insight into the history of the facility but insanity itself and its treatment. Whilst we didn't see any ghosts it was a whole lot of fun ans education at the...More
At $40 per person you expected some value for money and some great entertainment but the tour lacked any professionalism. After 30min I was hoping the tour to end. If it was $20 it would have been better value.
It does have potential
The tour guide we had on the night tour just rushed through the tour from start to finish. We did not even have time to take decent photos, as you can’t walk and take photos at the same time. So it was very disappointing, as...More
We visited here with friends on a weekend with trip to Ararat.

It was very entertaining and exciting and the history is very...More
Did the 4 hour night tour...Would have expected at least a cuppa tea/coffee halfway through the evening. We got a toilet/cigarette break...Too bad if you didn't need either on a very cold night!
The commentary was ok but not great...The people on our tour all...More

Had a great time. The tour guide was great. But feel like we had to push for information as to what buildings we were walking past and whatnot. Bit dissapointed, after having a slightly late start We also finished early!! Even after me saying that...More
We got some ghost detection equipment which was a nice surprise and I quite enjoyed the whole theatrics of the whole investigation. I didn’t witness and paranormal activity but some of the girls in our group got quite a few good hits on the emf...More
I went on the 2 hour tour. There is a lot of stairs and walking. Short beaks so the guide can do their talking. It is also quite dark, only lantern light. I would say it may not be suitable. So I think it would be up to you... More
I went on the 2 hour tour. There is a lot of stairs and walking. Short beaks so the guide can do their talking. It is also quite dark, only lantern light. I would say it may not be suitable. So I think it would be up to you on what you decide. Its a great tour.
I thought it would be easier to direct you to a review via the weekend notes website which will provide some hints and tips. Just google "weekend notes aradale asylum" and it will appear.
