The Suburban Hallway Wanderer

My grandparents bought a block of land in the mid 1950′s in Sydney Australia. They build a brand new modest 2 bedroom home on the property, they lived in the house with my father who was an only child. My grandparents worked often so my father was home alone most of the week. A few times during his childhood my father would see a dark tall figure walking down the hallway, he asked his mother about it but she completely dismissed the story. Then after my eldest brother was born my mother was sitting in the living room with him adjacent to the hallway. The living room doorway was covered by 2 glass doors, my mother felt as if there was someone near her she turned and saw a shadowy figure pass by the glass doors, she scooped up my brother and ran after it, all she could see was this dark full colored cloud disappear into thin air.

I Saw But I Dont Believe

I live in the surrounding suburbs of Sydney, Australia. One day years ago I was at a friends house for dinner. Before I go into detail though I would like to mention, I’m a devout Atheist and although this memory is vivid, sober etc, I still don’t believe it myself. (But it freaks me out).

I have been close with his family since I was 5 years old and know them all quite well, which will explain some things later. This night no-body was home accept myself and, let’s call him Bob. Bob was in the kitchen fixing up dinner whilst I was in his bedroom playing his guitar. From that position I could see clearly out of the door to the hallway, which lead to the left into the dinning/kitchen (joined) which is roughly a meter of wall between my sight out of the door to seeing Bob in the kitchen.

As I played away at the guitar I …

The Spirit Who Loves Red

Well, to start off, I’m in my mid teens presently and this is a personal paranormal experience that has happened recently within the last two to three months.

I am not a gullible teen, nor a faker, and I completely believe in the paranormal, though I do show a lot of skepticism to different stories at times. I do know quite a fair bit about the paranormal, what I choose to believe and what I don’t, but for the sake of not starting arguments or having someone prove my knowledge wrong, I wont try and name what this exact paranormal experience is. You may not find it to be paranormal at all, but I am pretty certain it is. This story may be long, but I hope you read it and I hope someone can either relate to it, or gain an understanding from it, whatever that may be. Well, here goes:

At the moment, I live with my Nan …

Haunted Sydney – The Rocks and Quarantine Station

Australians have a long history with ghosts. Our second national anthem, “Waltzing Matilda” includes a ghost who returns afterwards to the water hole where he had been shot by English soldiers. While defeated in a referendum, this was almost the Australian National Anthem! I think we may be the only country who nearly stood, tall and proud to sing about a ghost! Now that’s the ‘ol never say die attitude!

In Sydney, “The Rocks” area is very popular with Ghost Hunts as many of the original buildings from 1800 still stand and some lanes still even have original cobble stones from 200 years ago! 200 years ago it was a poor area and mostly contained a ghetto of the poorer folk, though now it is a gentrified part of the Sydney CBD and one of the most expensive parts of Sydney! I think that would have some of the poorer folk turning in their graves!

On one Rocks tour in …

Fishers Ghost Festival in Liverpool Sydney

My mother’s haunted house is in Liverpool, Sydney, Australia. The next suburb over, called Ingleburn (and also home to Ingleburn Army base) is home to a very old Australian ghost story that goes back to convict days.

In convict days, Liverpool and Ingleburn were rural outposts of Sydney. On the evening of June 17, 1826 a Mr. Fred Fisher was at the local pub drinking with friends, but after leaving the pub Mr. Fisher disappeared without a trace. Mr. Fisher was a ‘ticket of leave man’, which means he was a paroled convict but just the same, he had managed to accrue some land, a horse and a small shack of a house. The local constabulary made enquiries but it was very difficult to prove anything without a body.

One of Mr. Fisher’s drinking partners that evening, George Worrell was adamant that Mr. Fisher had skipped town and gone back to England, with Mr. Fisher having conveniently given him power …

Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 21

Have you read the previous parts of this story? Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 1

My family and I have often had present the human members of our family after they have passed and our animal companions have been no different.

Bandit was a cattle dog / corgi cross – tan with a black eye patch of fur across his face (hence the name Bandit) that my Dad bought when I was three. The only conscious memory I have of my Dad, is the back of his head as he drove the car home the day we bought Bandit.

Bandit was the only constant in my life until he died when I was 18 and in my last year of High School. In his day, not even 6′ wooden fences could stop him escaping with his strong cattle dog shoulders, he’d just jump and power climb the vertical wooden wall until one day an encounter with a bus during …

Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 20

Have you read the previous parts of this story? Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 1

Now I’ve lived in a few homes all around Australia and all has been quiet in relation to paranormal activity in comparison to what went on in my mother’s house growing up. Until we moved into our current army house in Darwin, Australia. DHA (Defense Housing Australia) have a code that they dispose of any homes that have had a suicide in them – given the nature of serving members this sadly does have a higher incidence than the general population.

I’d arrived in Darwin in 2006 to get married before my husband was deployed the first time. My husband had not left for weeks for the second time when I got the news we had to move to another house suddenly. Why they couldn’t have done all this BEFORE he left is anyone’s guess! My girlfriend and I did the rounds of Darwin, …

Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 19 My First Ghost Hunt

Have you read the previous parts of this story? Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 1

As an adult now and a parent of children myself, I have remained very open minded about the paranormal and have always been very supportive of my children and their experiences.

I have been able to determine I have shut down a lot of my abilities due to a fairly negative reception when I was younger, but suspect I could have been a medium/ psychic if I had developed my powers in a supportive atmosphere. That hasn’t stopped my ‘spidey sense’ reminding me its there on occasion!

My daughter spent most of her formative years with her father (a skeptic) while my son lived with me from age 12. My son appears the more sensitive of the two, but they do both experience entities – just in different ways.

I avoided the paranormal on purpose for many years between 20 and 30. I did …

Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 17

Have you read the previous parts of this story? Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 1

After our experiences growing up, being open minded about the paranormal meant my mother, sisters and I all researched what ever we could on the subject. We experimented with transcendental meditation, astral travel and mediumship. We find we tend to have what we call a bit of ‘gut instinct’ about things usually… which are usually found to be right.

After a serious work injury in 1980, I was taught self hypnosis as a method of pain control and ended up with a strange and unexpected side effect. I started to lucid dream and have pre-cognitive dreams. Lucid dreaming is when you are in a dream state but become conscious you are in a dream. So while in theory being fully conscious in a dream sound ludicrous – it is possible to be ‘awake’ and conscious inside a dream state. I have since researched and …

Growing up Haunted in Sydney Part 15

Having already ‘grown up haunted’ soon it was my children’s turn. My son was around 5 or 6 when he gave the first indications he could see ‘things’. Coming home from school one day he announced cheerfully “I saw a ghost at school today mummy.” Given my history, I was well prepared that this day may come and I was determined not to handle it as badly.

“What did it look like?” I asked. “mmmmm a bit like white plastic in the wind all wobbly” he began starting on his cookie. Sensibly, I did wonder if he had just seen a discarded plastic bag caught up in the wind whip around the playground. “What was the ghost doing at you school?” I asked keeping it all very casual. “It was looking in all the windows” he said “it came along on my side of …
