Traralgon Ghost Tour -15th of November 2015

Traralgon Ghost Tour 15th Nov 2015The Traralgon ghost tour is on the 15th of November 2015 at 8pm.

Traralgon is a major town in the Latrobe Valley, it was originally called Hobsons Run, because it was owned by a man named Edward Hobson. It is a lively town today, with shopping, bars, food, and paranormal sightings.

Traralgon was a major stop for the bullock drovers, the decision to put the railway through here is what made Traralgon the bustling hub it is today, as a major stop over getting the items from the Port of Sale and Port Albert through in to Gippsland.

The format is a walking tour of Traralgon, going to public spaces that have a tragic past and there are spirits remaining. It also covers a places we cannot walk too. There are quite a few ghostly tales, we walk for about five minute intervals between stories.

Join us for a guided walking tour back-in-time a chance to experience history, the paranormal and bizarre. Be drawn back with tales from Traralgon and surrounds.

Duration: 1 hour and half

Celebrating Halloween…

Halloween is an event that falls on the 31st of October, the name comes from combining the phrase “All Hallows Eve”, the night before All Saints (Hallows) Day.

That is the only thing that is absolutely certain about Halloween, because it has histories that have been written to challenge the pagan culture. With Colonisation when the Church conquered along with Britain they would Christianise the festivals and customs of the locals to bring the cultures closer together (another example is the ‘Day of the Dead’). Or alienate people they considered to far from the values they wanted, like witches.

The ancient Celts, on Samhain (Sow-en) asked for favour over their upcoming harvests. The celebration started at sunset on the 31st of October and goes through until 1st of November.   They celebrated by wearing meaningful costumes and dancing around a bonfire.

Some Christians say Halloween is the most Satanic festival of the year and believe those who celebrate it are worshiping the devil. This has inspired a whole range of horror themed Halloween ideas, which are a lot of fun to watch.

So how do you celebrate Halloween (The most retweets would seem to the most favoured method)?

In Australia Halloween is a relatively new widespread celebration. Some Australians may see it as a fun idea to dress up, eat lollies and have a party… Others might not get quite into the spirit of things, or refuse to celebrate as it’s not a part of our culture.

Do you love Halloween for the ability to pull out the pumpkin recipes and make soup, pumpkin pie, and stock the freezer with comfort food for the cooler days ahead.

Do you celebrate Samhain, the end of summer instead with dressing up and dancing around a campfire.

Do you want to attend a ghost tour? We’re running one on Halloween and the 30th of October. You could come along, if you’re in Yallourn North of Traralgon.

feedback from Amethyst Rose about the first Traralgon Ghost Tour

Our journey then proceed to what was my favourite part of the tour; a stroll through the alleyways connect Seymour Street with Hotham. (1) It was an overall fascinating and atmospheric night and an experience I would highly recommend to others with a flair for local myth and legend. (1)
