Paranormal Experience – Wake in Fright Sleepover

Paranormal Experience – Wake in Fright Sleepover


Built in the 1800s, the Lieutenant Governor’s Residence, has never before been available to visitors for paranormal investigation. Maitland Gaol has partnered with Newcastle Ghost Tours, to offer a special opportunity to access this building and search for paranormal activity. This experience will only be available for a strictly limited time, as the building is slated for redevelopment.

The night will begin with a paranormal investigation of The Residence. As the night progresses, sleeping areas will be allocated and you can choose to rest at any point throughout the evening. Those that wish to continue will work in small groups on further experiments.

Important information to note

– Throughout the night all participants will be required to take a safety break so that they are rested for the journey home on Sunday morning.

– There will also be an unlimited tea, coffee, and cake provided to help keep you going throughout the night.

– The building is multilevel with staircases from the basement to the top floor. Ticketholders should be able to manage stairs unassisted to explore and enjoy this experience.
