Posted on 31/10/2017 by

Lanarch Castle in Dunedin is pretty as a picture – but some people say it’s haunted by ghosts, making it one of NZ’s most popular spooky tourism attractions.

Happy Halloween!

If Halloween is your favourite holiday and you get a buzz from the spookier things in life, you’ll love this list.

Here are some of New Zealand’s spookiest tourism attractions – the perfect places to get your haunt on this Halloween.


Set on the grounds of an old asylum, Spookers is a live entertainment experience that ensures you’ll get a good scare at every turn. Creep through a haunted house or the ‘freaky forest of fear’ and try not to jump from fright!

Auckland Ghost Tours

Explore some of Auckland’s spooky history with a ghost tour – professional tours hosted by knowledgeable guides. You’ll learn something about New Zealand’s largest city while listening to fascinating ghost stories as you walk.

Hair Raiser Tours

One of Dunedin’s most popular attractions, Hair Raiser Tours was awarded a 2017 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor. Your experienced tour guides will take you on a hair-raising night walk through some of Dunedin’s spookiest spots – not to be missed if you love haunted stories.

Fear Factory

Described as “New Zealand’s Scariest Haunted House”, the Fear Factory is located in Queenstown. Apparently over 13,000 people have chickened out from this spooky experience. Add it to your list next time you are visiting Queenstown.

Lanarch Castle

A beautiful castle set in the rolling hills of Dunedin peninsula, at first glance Lanarch Castle looks like a lovely place to enjoy a cup of tea. However, the castle is said to have a haunted history and be home to many ghosts. Visit it to find out for yourself!
