Ghost hunting tour through the heritage Mountain Maid Gold Mine in Copeland Tops.

Can an old gold mining area still be haunted?

What can we hear at the mine entrance or the miners hut?

Do the spirits of the miners follow us through the forest?


Newcastle Ghost Tours and Frightfully Good Tours and Events takes you into the Copeland Tops State Conservation area and the township of Gloucester on a ghost hunt like no other.

We hope the dark doesn't scare you!

In 1876 first discovered gold at Copeland. People came from everywhere once the word got out and soon the population exploded to 1,100 inhabitants with three pubs and 4 stores turning the area into a scene from a wild west movie.

On this tour you will firstly visit the Gloucester Museum to see artifacts and learn about life during the gold rush. Silent vigils will help us find out if some of the museum pieces can act as trigger objects to attract spirits and some, well, may well be still possessed with the energies of their owners.

Watch out for the REM POD activity - it can be wild!!!


We then hop back into our cars and take a twenty minute drive out to the Mountain Maid Gold Mine site meeting in the car park.

Address: Mountain Maid Track, Copeland

This is in the National Park - deep into the woods we go!! It's dark - it's spooky - it's fabulous!!


We will explore an old historic building where miners stayed overnight in the last years of the working mine site and get up close and personal to old machinery, calling out to the ghosts amongst the over grown tracks as the world of the miners opens up to us using portal devices.

Can you still hear their voices and the noise of the rock crushing machines?

We cannot enter into the mine but we will come to the entrance in small groups and listen in with bionic ear devices. Who may still be down there?


This is a very unique ghost hunt and the total time is approximately 3 hours.

Start time is 7pm to 10.15pm.

We meet at the Gloucester District Historical Museum 12 Church Street Gloucester.

We then drive to the Mountain Maid Gold Mine site at the Copeland Tops State Conservation Area meeting in the car park.

Follow us in your car - or make your way there via Barrington Village - it's only 20 minutes away.

This is your last chance to go to the toilet (at the entrance to the park - please use it if you have to) The ground is a little unlevel but an easy walk.

You will have guides who will take you in to three areas to experience specific ghost hunting techniques to connect with the ghosts of the site.
