The first Yallourn North Ghost Tour. These photos were kindly provided by Rodney Lloyd. Thanks so much they’re great!
It was a worrying start to the first Yallourn North Ghost Tour, on Friday the 13th of February, as the weather bureau issued a severe weather warning for most of Victoria, however in our little neck of the woods, the storms went around us, we got some rain, a little lightning (a flash came at the best time, as I’d announced I’d tell the legend of the Haunted Hills) and we could sometimes hear thunder. I was watching the rain radar for most of the afternoon, not that I’m worried about the rain, I have umbrellas.
The umbrella’s got a work out on the very first tour. They’re now drying on an impromptu drying rack. I was also told by some Yallourn North residents, that they saw the parade of umbrella’s making their way around town. I’m glad we’re very visible.
So far, all the feedback I’ve received has been positive including the very first review posted the day after. You can read more about that here. The demographic of the first tour was mostly made up of Latrobe Valley residents, plus four from out of the Latrobe Valley, including 4 from outside the Valley and one of those people was from another country. First tour and we’ve gone international! A smaller group of ghost tour participants went on to the Rossmore Hotel afterwards.
