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.

Will I have a paranormal encounter?

A paranormal encounter is not guaranteed. We do our best to ensure you have an experience discovering lots of interesting things about Yallourn and the Brown Coal Mine.

Do ghost tours operate in the rain?

Yes, we have umbrellas to share. We suggest you wear weather appropriate shoes and clothes for your own comfort.

Do ghost tours operate during bush-fires?

We will take advice from the Country Fire Authority (CFA) and let you know, via email and on our social media pages. If we do cancel due to a bush-fire, we will refund pre-purchased tickets.

Yes. Yallourn North is on a gentle slope. There are uneven surfaces. If you have accessibility issues issues please let us know, we’d love to ensure your experience is a great one.

How long does the ghost tour last?

It’s an hour and half. This is the length of time the material and walking to the different locations will take.

Clothes, please. Weather appropriate is a bonus. As the tours run at night time it can get quite chilly even if the day was warm. Winter is cold (June-August).

What happens if I need to leave the tour early?

We hope that doesn’t happen. We’ll direct you back to the car park. There is no refund.

Can I smoke on the ghost tour?

No, thank-you. We might miss an apparition.

Can I drink alcohol on the tour?

We want to explore the spirits of the past, and hear about the sly grog trade in Yallourn. We don’t need present day examples and it isn’t tolerated on the tour for your safety and that of the others on the tour.
