What do you even wear on a Hobart ghost tour?

Hobart can get cold at any time of the year, so it’s a good idea to rug up with a jacket and a beanie (you can check out a huge range of winter-wear over at the Iconic here). If you want our advice, check out the brand Huffer or RAINS for super warm jackets in range of colours.

Ghosts got you too scared to go home?

It’s ok, we won’t tell anyone! But if you’re looking for some extra protection after your devilish tour, then you could consider staying at a hotel in Hobart. Those ghosts would totally have to get past the doorman and reception team before they get to your room, so we’re feeling pretty confident you’ll be safe (for a night at least)! Click here to check out the hotels on offer.

So if you’re keen to do something different and get the bejeezus scared out of you, then it’s time to go ghost hunting in Hobart!
