Ghost or Not

spirit, ghost, other, light tricks, landscape,

I’m new to deciphering the visual language of the spirit world. So, I’m putting it out to the people.

At the very first Yallourn North Ghost Tour, I was shown some  photos on a phone that looked amazing. Of course, I was really jazzed that I might have found evidence of ghosts on my first tour. It had been a great night, everybody was really complimentary afterward and it was spine tingling delicious icing on the cake.  I was a little bewildered because couldn’t pick reasons for ghosts to be in those places. (But maybe I’m over thinking it and the ghosts go where they please.) I received the photos by email and had a look tried to get some feedback on them, and was asked for photos of the area, which is a good question. So I’ve included those here for you to look through as well. (This is a picture heavy page).  But it is hopefully everything you need to know to make up your mind about the photos.

(Right at the bottom are more photos, check them out I might have missed something, and I’d love your opinion.)

Yallourn North, War Memorial, Spirit pic, ghost pic,

The first picture on the meme above is cropped, and the full picture of it looks like this: (without being stretched) 
It looks like a man wearing a hat, is it a trick of light or a spirit manifesting? This photo was taken on the War Memorial (made of rock) at Yallourn North, two women were taking pictures of the rock that was wet, and has a yellow light at the bottom, other photos on Haunted Hills Tours have photos of the memorial

Is this a spirit photo? Taken on North Road, the place where I talk about the haunted houses in Yallourn North and a ghastly finding on Quarry Road.

This is a park on North Road, Yallourn North, that has a seat and plenty of space to play marbles as residents remember doing when they were kids. This is a daytime picture of the above possible or not ghost pic.

If you stuck around for all that there are more photos.

The first Yallourn North ghost tour and review!

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.

Ghost tours coming soon to Gippsland

Hello there!

We’re kicking off with Ghost Tours in the Yallourn North township on the first freaky day of the new year. Friday the 13th of February 2015. Bonus, we get another freaky Friday in March as well.

We’re gathering some information about how people locally would feel about this, how we can work with them and vice-versa. Yallourn North has a rich history, and there are lots of strange, macabre and interesting things to share. We’re also planning on covering the old township of Yallourn as well.

If you want to be part of giving us your ideas about how these tours should operate, please help fill in this short survey.

If there’s anything you want to know or you’d like to keep in contact send us an email below.
