Sacred Heart Ballarat Tour dates 2012
« on: April 05, 2012, 07:00:08 PM »
Sneak peak to whet your appetite!

What lurks behind the cloistered walls of the Sacred Heart Convent? Perhaps one of the most clandestine buildings in Ballarat!

For the first time in its 140 year history The Convent and catholic school of The Sacred Heart will be opening its doors to the curious public and allowing access to its labyrinth of buildings and its abundance of history. Never before has the general public been allowed access to this iconic building still in original and untouched condition.

Behind its 8 foot high walls is a place of secrecy and seclusion yet one bearing witness to the changes of time, both within its walls and within the general Ballarat community. Oh and what tales these walls can tell.

For something unseen lies within the walls of this haven of religious solitude. More than simply an historic building or the subject of urban myth, more than an abandoned place of worship, Sacred Heart has a story to tell.

The behind the cloistered walls tour of the Sacred Heart Convent is a living history of the building, its witness to local history and an exploration of those who are left to walk the empty hallways alone. We embark on a lamp lit journey into the world of the unknown, of those who are still earthbound.

Sacred Heart verily oozes atmosphere and foreboding.

Expect to be chilled.

Bookings are essential and numbers are limited!
Led by Spookspotters Paranormal Research Team of Paranormal Australia and The Convent. All particpants must be over the age of 17. The tour is conducted throughout the historic building and therefore involves numerous stairs, extensive walking and standing.

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

haha yeah and finding out who the hanger onerer was on the run through...

One day my light went out, but was blown again into flame by an encounter with some wonderful people I call friends. I owe the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light...
