Daniel Phillips is the founder of SydneyGhostTour.Com and SydneyHistoryTour.Com.
He is a local history buff, who has researched in enormous depth and detail the hidden history of the North Shore of Sydney.
SydneyGhostTour.com and SydneyHistoryTour.Com seek to tell the story of Sydney, and Australia’s forgotten pioneers. We preserve and promote their memory, by vividly telling their stories in the present, both through our tours, the internet and via other technologies. It came about as a result of watching, with mounting frustration, elected officials and bureacrats paying lip service, and not much else, to the need for preserving our heritage. It became apparent to Daniel that an alternative plan was needed before more was lost.
Rather than wait for government to “get around to it”, SydneyGhostTour.com and SydneyHistoryTour.Com places 10% of all pre-tax profits directly into an active conservation fund, and directly acts in the promotion of history through the internet and multimedia presentations, the preservation of historic sites, headstones, and other remaining artifacts. . Essentially, it is a “Profit for a purpose” organisation.
Therefore, every time that you come along on one of our tours, you know that you are directly contributing to the preservation and commemoration of the people and places you will see and hear about on our tours.
Enjoy your tour with confidence - The Working with Children Check
As part of new legislation that protects the public, the NSW parliament has implemented a "Certificate for Self Employed People" for working with children that is due to become compulsory in May 2011. It is a thorough background check done by the NSW & Australian Federal Police, checking all state, territory and federal records to ensure that someone is a fit and proper person to conduct business activities such as coaching, teaching and other activities with young people I have recieved this certification as part of the due diligence, and required certifications /set up of SydneyGhostTour.com, and BeyondTheGrave.Net.Au, as a part of the Federal government New Enterprise Incentive Scheme. As a result - you can bring or send your supervised teenage children along to our tours with confidence that they are in responsible care.
