Description

Unearth the scary stories of J Ward, a former lunatic asylum, on this ghost tour in Ararat. Enter the building that once housed both law-abiding and criminally insane prisoners while your guide shares tales of capital punishment in the old days as well as eerie stories about the famous convicts.

Meet your guide at J Ward on Girdlestone Street in Ararat and embark on your chilling adventure with a tour of the ward. In this historic building, uncover some of the disturbing old records including electroshock therapy devices, straitjackets, as well as old ward book-keeping sheets.

Afterward, follow your guide as you walk in the footsteps of notorious criminals like Bill Wallace, the oldest patient in the facility, and Charles Fossard, the longest-serving inmate. Then hear their stories from your guide on this award-winning tour as you explore the hangman's gallows, grave sites, yards and the original kitchen and bathroom.
