One for the horror buffs, a ghost tour of Ararat's J Ward is just the ticket for those who love their thrills and chills. Over the two-hour nighttime tour of the infamous gaol-turned-ward for the criminally insane — that, over its time, housed such notorious criminals as Chopper Read, Gary Webb and Bill Wallace — you'll get to explore sites like the governor's bathroom, hangman's gallows, the original kitchen, showerblock and grave sites, searching for the souls that still linger there.
