  • Go hunting for the Adelaide Arcade ghost. Things really do go bump in the night in the Adelaide Arcade. Whilst wandering down the beautiful arcade and peering into the quirky shops and cafés, you’d be forgiven for not realising that a murky world of mystery lies below you. Under the arcade are disused tea rooms, that are rumoured to be the home of the ghosts of up to three ex-Arcade workers who sadly died there over the years. Take an after-dark tour if you’re brave enough, and see for yourself.

  • Solve the cold case of the Somerton Man mystery. In 1948 the body of a man in a suit was found on Somerton Beach. A piece of paper found in a secret pocket of his suit, was later revealed to be torn from a book containing a secret code. To this day the man is yet to be identified and the code is yet to be cracked. Draw your own conclusion on the self-guided Cold Case: Somerton Man Mystery tour. If you don’t quite crack it, try your hand at our escape room inspired by this mystery, Spy on the Beach and put your newfound knowledge to the test!
