Be incarcerated in the J Ward Lunatic Asylum on a 2 hour ghost tour or be a ghost hunter for the night on an overnight paranormal investigation. We operate ghost tours and paranormal investigations of Ararat's most popular tourist attraction: J Ward Lunatic Asylum.

J Ward is the premier tourist venue in the Victorian town of Ararat, visited by more than 10,000 people annually (greater than Ararat's population).

Tours are run by Friends of J Ward experts and paranormal investigators who are passionate about Ararat's heritage. Our team tell the story of people who lived, who broke the law, who couldn't help themselves, who feared, who died and of course the ghostt that linger. We operate Ararat's original and longest running ghost tours and investigations.
