THE TOP TEN MOST HAUNTED SCARIEST PLACES IN AUSTRALIA

By Lisa Lee Harp waugh


There are of course many places and haunted locations that come to mind when questioning what is the most haunted scariest places in Australia to find real ghosts hauntings and paranormal activity.

On my recent trip to the down under I found that many places are more haunted then those there might want to believe. Here are my Top Ten Favorite Most Haunted Locations that I visited while in Australia.

From many an old ghost towns or even modern contemporary abandon buildings and haunted cemeteries that cross the great expanse of our nation. These are often considered at the top of many a persons personal favorite list to investigate and look for spooks and ghosties.

THE TOP TEN MOST HAUNTED SCARIEST PLACES IN AUSTRALIA

Real Ghost Hauntings and Paranormal Activity Australia

In Modern Australian folklore, the witching hour is the time when supernatural creatures such as spirits, vampires, witches, demons and evil ghosts are thought to be at their most powerful, and use of ritual black magic spells and hexes are at its most effective point. Some old tales in the out back refer to it as dream time. (Not to be confused with Dreamtime.) In Australian Aboriginal mythology, The Dreaming or Altjeringa (also called the Dreamtime) is a sacred 'once upon a time' in which ancestral Totemic Spirit Beings formed The Creation.

Fred Alan Wolf opens chapter nine of The Dreaming Universe (1994) entitled The Dreamtime with a quote from The Last Wave, a film by Peter Weir:

Aboriginals believe in two forms of time; two parallel streams of activity. One is the daily objective activity, the other is an infinite spiritual cycle called the "dreamtime", more real than reality itself. Whatever happens in the dreamtime establishes the values, symbols, and laws of Aboriginal society. It was believed that some people of unusual spiritual powers had contact with the dreamtime.

This hour is typically in European Folklore to be the hour of midnight, and the term may now be used to refer to midnight, or any late hour, even without having the associated superstitious beliefs. Australian Witches often will tell you that though many believe that spells for love should be practiced at #am only and should not be practiced at any other then this time of day.

The term "witching hour" or "The Ghost Haunting Hour" or simply "The Ghosts Hour" can also refer to the period from midnight to 3am, while "devils hour" refers to the time around 3am AU. This the satanic inversion of 3 P.M., the hour that is claimed to be when Jesus Christ the Nazarene died on the cross on Golgatha. And in an anti- damnation to God.

In the movie, Paranormal Activity (film), a demon would typically haunt and disturb the couple between midnight to 3am. 3am is usually considered as Devil's Hour. This is because he, (The Devil) is then set free and his power is great for it is the darkest of the night when heavens light is hidden from the world for 1 hour.

THE TOP TEN MOST HAUNTED SCARIEST PLACES IN AUSTRALIA WHERE YOU MIGHT ENCOUNTER A REAL GHOSTS OR PARANORMAL ACTIVITY


1. Rookwood Cemetery - Sydney, Australia

"The Most Haunted Cemetery in Australia and in the World"

Rookwood Cemetery

Welcome to Rookwood

Rookwood Cemetery-Anglican and General Cemetery Trusts.


Victorian Rookwood necropolis in Sydney, but it is the grave of the notorious Davenport Brothers, famous spiritualists. Rookwood Cemetery (officially named The Necropolis and named when it opened as The Necropolis, Haslams Creek.) is the largest multicultural necropolis in the Southern Hemisphere, close to Lidcombe Station in Sydney, Australia. It is also thought to be home to one of the lost or hidden gates to hell.

Located in this huge cemetery is also one of the many Devil's chairs. a supposed seat where the Devil is said to appear sitting on when someone wishes to make a deal with him. the actual cemetery is said to have several Devil Chairs and one special wishing bench.

The wishing bench of Rookwood is said to be very special and if you sit and pray on it your prayers will be heard in heaven and answered immediately. There is also an old tale that tells that between midnight to 3am An angel appears and sits on it. they say this is to ward off and guard it against the devils from hell that would come to destroy it.

The name Rookwood came some 20 years after the establishment of the actual great necropolis, it was a means to differentiate the local village of Haslams Creek from the association of the burial ground, the village changed its name to Rookwood, and naturally the cemetery was soon known as Rookwood, the village changed its name again in the early 20th Century to "Lidcombe" (a combination of two Mayors names, Lidbury and Larcombe - Larcombe was also a Monumental Stone Mason). The actual haunted cemetery retained the name Rookwood.

Approximately one million people have their final resting place within the boundaries of its almost 3 km². The "Friends of Rookwood Inc" raise public awareness of the cultural and historical value of the cemetery and also the need to ensure its preservation.

ROOKWOOD HAUNTED CEMETERY 1 MILLION GRAVES AND COUNTING!

Some older sections of Rookwood are overgrown with a riot of plants, early horticultural plants, some now large trees or groves, as well as an interesting array of remnant indigenous flora. This results in quite an eclectic mix of flora to be found within the necropolis. Many say that since so many are interred here it can't just help being one of the most haunted places where the dead are buried.

Many ghost photos, EVP's and actual documenting of what many call the most real encounters of actual paranormal activity in the world occur here daily. Many say that the ghost are more restless here in this down under haunted city of the dead then any other location documented.


The Rookwood Cemetery Line used to be a part of the Sydney suburban network now known as CityRail. The line serviced Rookwood Cemetery and was built in 1864, opening on 22 October 1864.

With the closure of the Town Hall and Devonshire Cemeteries by the mid 1800's and an ever increasing population, a decision was made to purchase a huge area of land (250 acres) in 1862 to establish the Necropolis at Haslem’s Creek in 1867.[4] The term Necropolis comes from the Greek 'nekropolis' or 'City of the Dead'.

As this location was some distance from the centre of Sydney and from the main-line train station at Haslem’s Creek, it was considered necessary to establish a railway station at the centre of the cemetery. This line would run as a spur line from the existing station at Haslem’s creek and allow easier movement into and out of the cemetery. The railway line construction began in November 1864 and from January 1 1865 trains began their run into the cemetery. However, The Sydney Morning Herald advertised the first regular services from 1 April 1867. The times advertised were for services at 8.30am and 4.15pm. Later this was changed to 9.15am and 3pm. It stopped at prearranged stations on the journey from central Sydney in order to pick up mourners and coffins.

At the time of its opening the line went as far as Cemetery Station No. 1. On 26 May 1897 an extension of the line to Cemetery Station No. 3 was opened [3]. The extension required the removal of a waiting room on the rear wall of the Cemetery Station No. 1, so the line could pass right through the building. A final extension, to Cemetery Station No. 4 opened on 19 June 1908. The line closed in 1948.

The last trains that ran funeral processions all but ceased in the late 1930’s. Following this they were only used for visitors on Sundays and Mother’s Day The service was briefly revived during World War II during petrol rationing. The last railway timetable was recorded in 1947 and read Sydney 2.17pm to Strathfield 2.33pm to Rookwood #1, 2.50pm

On the 3rd of April, 1948 the service was officially terminated and the rails were pulled up. The spur was recorded as closed on the 29th December 1948

2. Haunted Fremantle Prison www.fremantleprison.com.au

Guided tours run daily through the site. Torchlight tours are also held twice weekly. Ramps are provided to enable disabled access through the ground floors of the prison; however, some upper levels are inaccessible. On tunnels tours visitors can walk and paddle through the tunnels by boat. Visitors descend 20 metres down a set of vertical ladders attached with harnesses and need to be fairly fit. A gift shop and restaurant also operate. The prison is closed Good Friday and Christmas Day.

The face of Martha Rendell, the only woman to be hanged at Fremantle, appears in the window of the church regularly. The face seems to be caused by ripples in the glass that reflect light in an unusual way, but the resemblance is uncanny.

Fremantle Prison

Fremantle ghost walks offers one hour ghost walking tours of the West End of Fremantle and ghost tours of the old Fremantle Asylum.

The old Fremantle Asylum was built in 1867 - being the colony's first Asylum for the insane it was later converted into a home for elderly women.

Fremantle ghost walks tells of tourists feeling cold chills upon entering the building, and experiencing many paranormal events. Strange dark or white shadows often turn up on film as well as strange EVP's of crazed voices crying for help. Real ghosts and apparitions are sometimes seen within the compound and a resident Old woman ghost is often reported to have made an appearance whilst on the tours. they say she will tug on your shirt or tap you on the shoulder to get your attention then ask you if you know the way out.

And when you turn and look no ones actually there.

Fremantle Prison is a former Australian prison located in The Terrace, Fremantle, in Western Australia. The 60,000 m² (15 acres) site includes the prison, gatehouse, perimeter walls, cottages, tunnels, and prisoner art. And it is said to be very haunted by those that died there.

The Fremantle prison riot was a prison riot that occurred on January 4, 1988 at Fremantle Prison, in Western Australia. The riot was organised as a diversion for an escape that was to take place. Prisoners created a fire as part of the diversion, and temperatures inside the cells were recorded at 52.2 °C (126 °F). 3 division and 4 division were taken over by a total of seventy prisoners, and 15 officers were taken hostage. The fire caused AU$1.8 million in damage and unintentionally prevented the planned escape.

Just before 4:00pm (1600) two prisoners were brought in from the exercise yards in 3 division to deliver tea and hot water to the cells as the other inmates were locked away. They had two twenty-five litre drums of boiling water stationed on the top floor above the gates, which was perfectly normal. Five officers were stationed in the division on this day, and as two officers opened the gates to let the prisoners in, fifty litres of boiling water was poured on their heads. At that moment, seventy violent prisoners from division three rushed in through the gates at once. They very quickly overpowered the officers, and locked them in the yards. The prisoners now had the cell keys, and they made their way to the top floor, opening every cell and throwing down anything removable that would burn, and piled it up at the doorway at the end of the division.

The fire they created was much bigger than they anticipated and the flames quite literally reached the roof. The roof was the original jarrah timber built 140 years prior, and before long half of the third division and all of the fourth division was a raging inferno that could be seen from Perth. Images were broadcast live across national television. Camera crews in helicopters filmed the chaos as the prison collapsed. From the air it appeared as if no efforts were being made to extinguish the fire; efforts were being made but the main gates were made in 1850 by convicts and were too narrow to get fire engines through. The fire continued for nineteen hours until the flames were brought under control.

After the fire was under control, the prisoners negotiated a trade of the prison officers for food. They then agreed to return control of the prison back to the guards. Although 15 officers were injured (two of them seriously), nobody was killed.

The prison was built by convict labour in the 1850s, and transferred to the colonial government in 1886 for use as a gaol for locally-sentenced prisoners. It closed as a prison in 1991 and reopened as a historic site. It is now a public museum, managed by the Government of Western Australia with daily and nightly tours being operated. Some tours include information about the existence of ghosts within the prison.

The prison is also widely referred to as Fremantle Gaol.

Fremantle Prison was constructed soon after the arrival of the convict ship Scindian in 1850. The Swan River Colony was settled by free settlers in 1829. In 1849, the farmers petitioned the colonial authority to request skilled convicts be sent from the British government. The first ship with 75 prisoners aboard arrived even before confirmation of the request was received. Edmund Henderson found on arrival that the town was unprepared and arranged temporary accommodation for the convicts at the harbour master's warehouse (now the Esplanade Hotel). Under direction from Henderson, James Manning and Henry Wray supervised the construction of the prison using convict labour from limestone quarried on-site. Construction began in 1851 and was completed in 1859. The first prisoners were moved there in 1855.[1] The original design of the main cell block was based upon that of Pentonville Prison in England.

Once construction of the prison's wings, perimeter walls and associated buildings was complete, convicts were often used in chain gangs for other public works in the Fremantle and surrounding Perth area, for example, Perth Town Hall and Fremantle Asylum. During this period the prison was named the Convict Establishment, although known locally and informally as the Limestone Lodge.

In 1868, penal transportation ceased in Western Australia. Numbers of transported convicts gradually declined; the prison came under the control of the colonial government and was renamed Fremantle Prison in 1886. Locally-sentenced male and female prisoners were moved from Perth gaol to the site which became the largest prison in Western Australia. Transportation had already ceased in the other colonies by 1853.[3] The old prison bakery was converted into the women's prison to accommodate this new role. It held up to 60 women until 1970, when the women's section closed and the inmates were transferred to Bandyup Women's Prison, north-east of Perth. The former women's section then became the prisoner assessment centre.

Fremantle Prison was decommissioned on November 8, 1991. Prisoners were transferred to Casuarina Prison about 30 km south of Perth, which opened the same year. Casuarina Prison replaced the 130-year-old Fremantle Prison as the state's main maximum-security prison. The buildings remained the jurisdiction of the Department of Housing and Works and the complex was leased for ten years to a conservation group, the Fremantle Guardians, who successfully ran tours around the buildings. After the lease expired in 2001, the state government again took control and embarked on a long-term plan for the future conservation of the site.

The network of tunnels under the prison was opened to the public on June 7, 2005.

Fremantle Prison featured in episode 8 of the 9th season of the popular reality TV show The Amazing Race. Teams had to search the grounds for a torch and the underground tunnel network for a clue.

www.marrinertheatres.com.au/whatson.do

The Princess Theatre is a 1488-seat theatre in Melbourne, Australia.

It is listed by the National Trust of Australia and is on the Victorian Heritage Register.

t was first erected in 1854 by actor-manager George Coppin, who would create Melbourne's theatre land. He already owned the Olympic (known as the 'Iron Pot') on the corner of Exhibition and Lonsdale Streets, installed gas lights in November 1855 into Astley's, and then he would go on to take over the Theatre Royal in Bourke Street.

The Princess Theatre is the second building on the present site - the first being Astley's Amphitheatre which opened in 1854 containing a central ring for equestrian entertainment and a stage at one end for dramatic performances. It was named in honour of the Astley Royal Amphitheatre, near Westminster Bridge, London

In 1857, the amphitheatre was renovated and the facade extended, then re-opening as the Princess Theatre and Opera House.

By 1885, the partnership of J. C. Williamson, George Musgrove and Arthur Garner, had been formed and they became known as 'The Triumvirate', the business becoming known as J. C. Williamson's. The Triumvirate resolved to build a new theatre.

Completed in 1866 to the design of architect William Pitt; George Gordon to design the interior; and Cockram and Comely as the builders; re-development of the Theatre took place at a cost of £50,000. The design is in the exuberant Second Empire style, and the theatre forms part of the Victorian streetscape of Spring Street.

When completed, it featured the world's first sliding or retractable roof and ceiling. It also featured state-of-the-art electrical stage lighting.

The theatre re-opened, again, on 18 December 1886, with a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado. The marble staircase and foyer was hailed as equal to that of the Paris Opera, the Frankfurt Stadt and the Grand in Bordeaux.

On 26 December 1922, new owners, Benjamin John Fuller and Hugh J. Ward renovated and reopened the theatre, with a performance of The O'Brien Girl.

In 1987, David Marriner purchased the Princess Theatre; he renovated and had the 1922 origins documented, then 9 December 1989, the theatre re-opened with the musical Les Misérables, followed by The Phantom of the Opera, establishing a new record for the longest running show ever staged in Victoria.

Real Ghost sightings

The Most haunted theatre in Australia has experienced several reported ghost sightings. Many believe the heart of all the paranomal avtivity is caused by that of the ghost known as the Great "Federici".

On the evening of 3 March 1888, the baritone Frederick Baker, known as "Federici", was performing the role of Mephistopheles in Gounod's opera Faust. This production ended with Mephistopheles sinking dramatically through a trapdoor returning to the fires of hell with his prize, the unfortunate Dr Faustus. The audience was spellbound. As the audience held its collective breath as Federici was lowered down through the stage into this basement, he had a heart attack and died immediately. They laid him on the floor, lifeless, in his crimson vestments. He never came back onstage, never took the bows. When the company was gathered together to be told that Federici had died, they asked, "When?". Being told of what had happened at the end of the opera, they said, "He's just been onstage and taken the bows with us." Since then, many people who have never heard of the Federici story have claimed to see a ghostly figure in evening dress at the theatre. For many years, the third-row seat in the dress circle was kept vacant in his honour.

They say if you feel somone kicking your shins then it is his ghots stelling you to vacate his seat.

When a documentary was made nearly 80 years later, by Kennedy Miller in the early 1970s, a photograph of the film set revealed an ashen-faced, partly transparent observer. No-one on the set saw the figure on that day; only the photograph revealed 'the ghost'.

But the actual location is also said to be haunted by several other ghosts. One is the ghost of a woman who cries in the dressing are who many said died at a performance and she whas brought backstage before her body left the building. Many say her EVP's are of a womans voice asking in tears please lead me back to my seat.

Another ghost is said to be that of a man that many see as they turn. He appears as a well dressed man extending his hand as if to shake. Men usualy encounter him and reach to shake then realize no one is there.

So if you happen to glance and see fine gentlemen reaching out to shake somones hand and no ones therre you know they have seen a real ghost!

4. Beechworth Lunatic Asylum in Beechworth

Beechworth Lunatic Asylum is a decommissioned psychiatric hospital located in Beechworth, a town of Victoria, Australia. One of the distinctive features of both Kew Asylum and Beechworth Asylum is the use of a variation on Ha-Ha walls around the patients courtyards. These ha-has consisted of a trench, one side of which was vertical and faced with stone or bricks, the other side sloped and turfed. From the inside, the walls presented at tall face to patients, preventing them from escaping, while from outside the walls looked low so as not to suggest imprisonment

www.beechworthghosttours.com

People could be admitted to the asylum as a lunatic patient by a number of means

  • At the request of a friend, relative or acquaintance, with medical certificates written by two medical practitioners. This method was amended by The Mental Health Act 1959 which stated a person could be admitted upon the recommendation of a medical practitioner who had examined the person. As soon as possible after admission the superintendent of the hospital was required to examine the patient and either approve the recommended admission or discharge the patient.
  • Any (lunatic) person found wandering at large or not under proper care and control could be brought before two justices who could order the person's removal to an asylum. The police were usually responsible for bringing the person before the two justices.
  • Any prisoner of the Crown thought to be a lunatic could be removed from a gaol to an asylum by order of the Chief Secretary.
  • Voluntary Boarders were those who requested that they be admitted for a mutually agreed period of time (from 1915 onwards).

To be admitted, only two signatures were required. To be discharged, eight signatures were required, thus it was a lot harder to get out than to get in.

Various ghost groups have reported sightings due to the death of seven people in the 1800s.

Monte Cristo: Australia's Most Haunted House.
By
Peter Underwood. FRSA.

Peter Underwood FRSAThis historic two-story house in Junee with its wide verandahs and beautiful wrought iron work is now open to thousands of visitors each year - and they all want to know about the ghosts and tragedies associated with this sprawling mansion.

The original occupants were William Crawley and his family in 1884 and it would appear that from the Crawley family most of the stories of ghosts and hauntings and many other tragic happenings seem to originate.

In fact the ghost of old Mrs Crawley has been seen many times in her former room and in recent years. It is believed that after William Crawley died in 1910, from a carbuncle on his neck becoming infected by his starched collar, Mrs Crawley only left the house on two occasions in the remaining 23 years of her life: no wonder her presence still lingers. Then there are the mysterious lights, apparitions. Not without cause is Monte Cristo a favorite Australian tourist attraction for a great number of Australians and other visitors.

The following stories are told by Reginald Ryan, owner of Monte Cristo Homestead.

MYSTERIOUS LIGHTS

"We moved into Monte Cristo on June 3rd 1963 blissfully unaware of the Homestead's often gruesome history, those dubious revelations would be some time off.

We had been in residence about three days when we ventured downtown one foggy evening for supplies, on the return trip we turned the bottom corner of the driveway and straightened up towards the house, as we did we saw light streaming out of every door and window; we got such a shock I stopped the car and we sat staring up at the brilliantly illuminated homestead dumfounded.

Olive didn't want to continue, felt sure there must have been a burglar up there, I replied to the effect we hadn't been away that long and had better go and investigate.

As we drove cautiously through the gateway the lights abruptly disappeared, again Monte Cristo was lost in fog and darkness.

We tried desperately to rationalize it, different people suggested the source of light was our car headlights shining onto windows of the house; but there wasn't a single pane of glass in the entire house, electricity hadn't been connected and the only source of light was a kerosene lamp not left lit.

This was the first of many strange, puzzling and sometimes frightening experiences that have occurred over the intervening years we have not found answers for.

Our first experience was eerily replayed 27 years later when our 21 year old son Lawrence was driving home one night the rest of the family were at a ball in Wagga, as he turned into the driveway he discovered all the lights of Monte Cristo ablaze but as he passed through the gates they disappeared again without explanation."

THE ENTRANCE HALL

"A local Council worker, I will call John R., came up to the homestead on Council business one afternoon and entered Monte Cristo in good spirits, suddenly he backed out and left. I later spoke to him downtown and his explanation was that he didn't like Monte Cristo and would never go up there again - he never has!.

The StairsTHE STAIRS

"On one of the house tours I was showing a mother and daughter through, having covered the ground floor without any problem I preceded to lead them upstairs and waited for them to catch up in the hall.

After waiting a few moments I peered over the banister to see where they were, finding both appearing to have trouble moving and on reaching the landing midway seemed incapable of ascending further. Both said in a worried tone some unseen force was stopping them going up, however once they moved down and away from the steps the problem disappeared.

The stairs often cause us problems, especially with children. Little children around the ages of three or four continually cause an uproar on or near the staircase, I've often wondered since learning about the death of a child on them if there's a connection?".

GHOSTLY VOICES

"Neil, a nephew of my wife Olive, and his girlfriend attended the 1992 Monte Cristo Ball and after it concluded in the early hours of the morning the lass wanted to use the toilet before retiring, however feeling frightened by the dark house asked Neil to escort her.

After waiting in the hallway for her Neil proceeded to escort her back towards the stairs which lead to their room, suddenly from the top of the darkened stairs a voice seemed to drift from nowhere, looking up they both saw a young woman dressed in white who said softly twice: "Don't worry, it will be all right" and vanished before their eyes.

Dining Room THE DINING ROOM

The presence of Mrs Crawley is strongly felt in this room by psychic's, when the ABC brought a group here for the "Big Country" we served them lunch and diner in the room. On several occasions during meals medium Van Blerk got up and left the room without explanation, waited outside a few moments and returned to his seat.

He later told us Mrs Crawley had ordered him out of the Dining Room, so for harmony sake he waited until her "presence" had left the room before returning to his seat.

BREAKFAST ROOM

When we moved into Monte Cristo this room served as our kitchen, it was in this room Olive found dead and mutilated kittens.

6. Mill Hill Hotel in Bondi Junction, New South Wales

Mill Hill Hotel in Bondi Junction, New South Wales. Bondi is an Aboriginal word meaning water breaking over rocks. It has been spelt a number of different ways over time: for example, Boondi, Bundi and Bundye.

The hotel on the corner of Oxford and Denison Streets has had many changes of name since 1886 when it converted from a boarding house: Wakely's Family Hotel, Van's Hotel, Rush's Hotel, Denison Hotel, Mill Hill Hotel. Much more then just few ghosts may linger including that of William Phillips, the hotel-keeper, who was found in his room having committed suicide by hanging in 1910.

Many rooms are thought to be haunted by an assortment of spectral visitors. From that of a childs ghost that is said to play pranks on guests. and that of a lady ghost who is said to be very randy and actually gets in bed with lone male guests late at night.

The first house in the area was Waverley House, which was built by Barnett Levey in 1827, on the current site of Waverley Street. The house changed hands many times over the years before finally being abolished. When Waverley Municipality was proclaimed in 1859, the name was taken from Waverley House.

Henry Hough was first given a grant of land on the site of Bondi Junction in 1832. On his estate, he built a wind-powered flour mill. This was accessed by a track leading of the South Head Road (now Oxford Street) the suburb's main thoroughfare. Hough named his farm Hope, but it was colloquially dubbed Mill Hill.

In 1854 the first hotel in the area opened. It was named The Waverley Tea Gardens and the surrounding area quickly took that name, quickly shortened to simply "Tea Gardens", which stuck for the next 30 years. By 1878 steam had supplanted wind in milling and the estate was closed. In May 1881 it was subdivided. Streets in this subdivision that exist today are Mill Hill Road and Hough Street. The subdivision of the estate coincided with the opening of the first tramway to the area - steam trams began operation from Taylor Square in Darlinghurst on March 12 1881.

8. Manly Quarantine Station Sydney

Part of Sydney Harbour National Park, Manly Quarantine Station falls under the administration of National Parks and Wildlife Service of New South Wales.

Manly Quarantine Station was once occupied by the aborigines, who revered the place for its rich profusion of medicinal herbs.

Manly Quarantine Station is of immense significance to the history of modern Australia. It was the place where hordes of immigrants to Australia were routinely stationed for weeks. The immigrants were subjected to several tests to ascertain that they were not carrying communicable diseases like smallpox, typhoid. Manly Quarantine Station operated from 1828 to 1984.


Haunted Manly Quarantine Station

Manly Quarantine Station is believed to be haunted by the spirits of the former immigrants and the staff. Its reputation as a haunted site has been reinforced by numerous accounts of people who faced paranormal experiences in the Station. There are ghost tours organized to Manly Quarantine Station. These tours are usually for four days.

The overlying rocks in Manly Quarantine Station carry over 2000 carvings. Many of these carvings have been translated.

The buildings which were once used to house the immigrants are now open to visitors. These buildings can be hired for weddings, conferences and the green house has attracted lot of horticulturists.

9. Maitland Gaol

A key anchor attraction of the Hunter, Maitland Gaol has a vibrant history spanning more than 150 years. After housing some of Australia's most hardened and notorious criminals, Maitland Gaol closed as a Correctional Institution in 1998.

The cell doors have now been swung open, with visitors invited to 'serve time' learning about the facility, past prisoners and daring escapes.

Open 7 days, Maitland Gaol offers visitors the opportunity to indulge in a world class self-guided audio tour. Additionally, themed-guided tours and torchlight tours by night are regularly available and are a great way to interpret this unique attraction. Only the brave can battle a group sleepover night.

During the 154 years the maximum security gaol was in use, it housed murderers, rapists, serial killers, armed robbers, escape artists and petty criminals. A total of 16 executions took place there, the last in 1897, and countless murders and suicides have been recorded. The bodies of those executed were buried beneath the courtyard. Only 11 prisoners ever managed to escape the walls of Maitland Gaol, all of which were recaptured.

The gaol was home to many infamous inmates, criminals like serial killer Ivan Milat, convicted drug trafficker George Savvas, armed robber and escape artist Darcy Dugan, underworld identity Jack Chow Hayes and career criminal Edward James "Jockey" Smith. The Anita Cobby, Leigh Lee and Janine Balding murderers, Ebony Simpson's killer and David Eastman, who was responsible for shooting Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester dead outside his ACT home in 1989, have also served time there. Notorious convicted murderer George Ward, just one of the many hanged within the gaol, met his fate on October 20, 1848 before a crowd of several hundred people.

In January 1998 the gaol was finally closed, deemed unsuitable to house inmates due to the poor conditions. Security was also a concern, as it did not meet community expectations. When you see just how close the gaol is to the civilian housing you'll understand.

Maitland Gaol is a maze of buildings, each with it's own brutal history and stories of resident ghosts. During the filming of this documentary, several unusual things did happen. I can't say for sure that the events we witnessed were paranormal. I can only do my best relay my stories and leave it to you to make up your own mind.

The Gaol is also burgeoning as a venue of choice for special events.

10. Waverley Cemetery

http://www.waverley.nsw.gov.au/cemetery/images/title.gif

Waverley Cemetery Tours - Take a twilight tour of this historic 'cemetery by the sea'.

www.waverley.nsw.gov.au/cemetery

The Waverley Cemetery opened in 1877 and is a cemetery located on top of the cliffs at Bronte in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. It is noted for its largely intact Victorian and Edwardian monuments. The cemetery contains the graves of many significant Australians including and the poet Henry Lawson and Australia's first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton,who is interred at South Head. Funerals are conducted Monday to Saturday.

When it comes to ghostly encounters this is a very active hot spot of real reported paranormal activity. EVP's and actual ghost photos happen daily.

Waverley Cemetery

Phone: (02) 9665 4938

Email: cemetery@waverley.nsw.gov.au

The cemetery is self-funded, deriving its income from interments – including burial cremation, memorials and Mausolea – of which there has been over 86,000. Waverley Cemetery was used during the filming of the 1979 Mel Gibson film Tim. The Cemetery was designed to function along similar lines to Père Lachaise in Paris and General Cemetery Company's Kensal Green Cemetery in London.

History and Infamy
The staff are particularly proud to highlight the graves of those famous and infamous people who contributed to our heritage; poets Henry Lawson, Dorothea Mackellar and Henry Kendall; sports celebrities like cricket greats Victor Trumper and the Gregory family, swimming champ 'Fanny' Durack; aviation pioneer Lawrence Hargraves; the Sargents of meat pie fame; Edmund Resch the famous beer brewer; chief justices Sir Francis Forbes and Sir James Dowling; Sir James Martin (the great Sydney pedestrian thoroughfare Martin Place is named in his honor); and John Sands, who produced the first Aussie Christmas Card, depicting eucalyptus and a kangaroo back in the 1890’s! All this brings both locals and tourists to Waverley Cemetery in huge numbers, 36,000 people pass through the marvellous main gate annually and another 5 million trek the coastal walk along the eastern perimeter.
