Walking Tours

‌‌‌Graveyard & Gallows Walking Tour


THE TOURS ARE NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING - Check back in August 2020 for updates.


Alongside an experienced guide, explore the grounds of Macaulay Heritage Park, the historic estate of Reverend William Macaulay, who is credited with giving Picton its name. Tour the neighbouring graveyard at his former church and spot the unusual tombstone that's in Ripley's Believe or Not. The tour will make its way to the nearby courthouse, where you'll explore the exercise yards, jail cells and gallows, most famously used in the 1884 hanging of two local men, a sentence some say was based on dubious evidence.

Runs Friday evenings in July and August, beginning at Macaulay House (35 Church Street, Picton).
