Many of these historical accounts of spectral hauntings and strange happenings were documented in early Australian newspapers and have been accurately transcribed in the pages of this book. These ghostly sightings will challenge even the most ardent sceptic. Many of these chilling events remain largely unexplained to this day. Murder and mayhem, mystifying mysteries, haunted houses, ghostly goldfields, shocking tragedies, pestering poltergeists, strange and bizarre happenings - they are all included. Many of the historical ghost tales in this book have been forgotten through the passing of time. Australia's Haunted History will bring these creepy tales back to life and spark the imagination of a new generation to ask that poignant question, are ghosts real? Old favourites have not been overlooked and several tales of well-known Australian ghosts are included. If you love a good ghost story, Australia's Haunted History will keep you entertained for hours. But be careful, after reading this book you may need to sleep with the light on!
