Have you ever wanted to communicate with the ghost of Fred Fisher and find out what really happened to him on the evening of June 17, 1826?

Sydney Investigation Ghost Tours will host a special Fisher’s Ghost Hunt during the celebrations at Festival of Fisher's Ghost on Saturday, November 11.

Director Jeanette Kamper said attendees could encounter the ghost of Fred Fisher or his murderer, George Worrall.

“We go to Quondong Cottage first and there are some spirits there that we have a rapport with,” she said.

“Then we go up to the Campbelltown Town Hall Theatre which is where we often encounter Fred’s spirit.”

Fred Fisher was murdered on June 17, 1826, however his body was not found until October of that year.

His corpse was only discovered after his ghost reportedly pointed local farmer John Farley in the right direction.

His murderer, George Worrall, was hanged in February, 1827.

Macarthur residents celebrate the legend of Fisher’s Ghost each year at an annual festival.

Ms Kamper said Fred’s ghost was particularly active during the festival.

“It’s all about him so he tends to be more active,” she said.

“It’s great because when we go out on tours people can find out the real truth about him.”

Ms Kamper said ghost hunters were accompanied by an experienced investigative team and a technology manager.

“We have K2 meters and lots of other equipment people can use,” she said.

“We keep numbers limited on the hunt so that people can get more out of the experience.”

The event will be held from 6.30pm until 10.30pm.

Tickets are $69 per person.
