Hello All

I know of Bishops cave. It is a very dangerous cave to enter. You need scuba gear to enter it. And entry is depending of tide wave and wind and weather conditions. The the problem I see the cave is not as big as people imagine. ( from memory I think the entrance is north of the little blow hole.)

Maybe the cave is partially blocked but connected in part of a network of Lava tunnels when the rocks around Kiama was created by a now extinct volcano in Jamberoo.

In theory these tunnels connected to the sea rising and failing in pressure could create vibration like very hardly detectable earth tremors enough to make a rocking horse rock. A ball fall off the table and roll across the room, a door suddenly open? Possible? But to make chairs move from one side of room to another without people feeling the vibrations?

The old hospital was built over an old farm house the may of had a well that may dug in part to these lava tunnels. With air pressure building up ie rising and failing in the tunnel. Air pressure could be escaping dissipating from the old well through the foundation and floors of the old hospital built over the old farm well.

 This escaping air through the floor boards may of caused things that can move easily to move?

Hence settling off a chain of perceived unexplained events...

A theory of course but by no means conclusive.....

Hi KANACKI, I think your last Post is certainly a logical answer to all of the highlighted movements.

You and Bronwyn certainly know a lot about the area both above and below, in respect to the geological aspects, which is quite amazing; well done.

Hello Simon

I know Kiama really well and surrounding areas. I was not born there but arrived there as a child. 50 + years ago. I remember the days you was allowed to camp just below the light house facing the Harbour. Back then they still had and aquarium and cafe on hill near the lighthouse near the blowhole. The quarry workers cottage was actually still peoples homes before they was turned into tourist trinket shops. I even remember the princess Hwy went through town before the bypass.

I imagine Bronwyn would even know much more...

Kiama has one of the oldest ghost stories in early colonial Australian history dating back to the 1830's

KANACKI, given the age of the ghost stories, Kiama is certainly worth physical observation, in relation to the age of the Ghost Stories dating back to the 1830's and still being supported today.

So, this makes a visit to Kiama even more important.

Another wonderfully unbiased and researched Post KANACKI; well done and great input Bronwyn; thank you both for making the Ghost Stories in and around Kiama most compelling.

Hello Simon

Just a little more info.

The geology of the kiama Jamberoo is highly unusual as the hill over looking kiama called Saddleback mountain is an actual extinct volcanic plug. However in its earlier existence as a volcano it had several eruptions and lava flows. Gerringong. kiama, bombo and minimurra and Robertson. The volcano had welled up through the basalt layers the coal measures and later sandstone layers of the great dividing range. Predominant of the area was rich red soils. Jamberoo valley floor has the deepest soil cover in Australia. 18 metre before hitting bedrock. Most of all the area has many geological dikes interrupting the strata caused most likely from  past volcanic upheavals.

The Bombo Headland, is of scientific importance as it is the site of the discovery of the longest known geomagnetic polarity interval called the Kiaman Reverse Superchron. The Kiaman Reverse Superchron lasted from approximately the late Carboniferous to the late Permian, or for more than 50 million years, from around 312 to 262 million years ago. The magnetic field had reversed polarity. The name "Kiaman" derives from the Australian village of Kiama, where some of the first geological evidence of the superchron was found in 1925.

There is nowhere on the entire south coast that has this type of geology.

There is the belief that ley lines and the flow of the earth natural energy are disrupted because of these volcanic dikes.

It is along these fault line dike intrusions some sea caves formed by erosion. Bishops cave, little blowhole and the kiama blow hole are all examples of that. Vibrations can be detected from ocean forces smashing into the underwater caverns sending those tiny almost undetectable tremors a fair distance from the coast.

That given the right circumstance may be a solution to things that may appear to move or rock. Especially a toy design to rock by balance.

Of course to the everyday person unable to detect vibrations would sure be freaked out seeing a rocking horse rock by itself. That is one possibility. Or the effects of The magnetic field had reversed polarity has some effect creating an area with a long settlement history 1810  prone to hauntings if you include the Bloody mile which is nearby within the area of volcanics.

Wow KANACKI, as per a previous Post, I am right in relation to your ability to drill down, too almost a "micro-level", in your research.

The detail you have given in your last Post would certainly be something to consider as a possible cause of the, "Rocking Horse Ghost".

Great work KANACKI.

Yes wow Kanacki.the geological information you gave of Kiama is extremely interesting.
Sorry i have not got back earlier.I have not spoken to my friend as yet.
I know or have heard that Bishops/Friars Cave is dangerous & small too.I do remember urban legend has it told that 1 or 2 men tried to traverse this cave & died.
The reverse polarity is something i am going to look into myself for myself given the fact i was born there.I grew up in Albion Park then moved to Kiama when 9.I cant live in Kiama due to it always playing with my head but i love the area.

You definitely need to visit Kiama Simon it is a beautiful area visually to the eye.The vibration side i am still sorting out in my own head.
Saddleback Mountain & Kiama Hospital ,the bloody mile, minnamurra river,mystics,the blowhole & my own one that i think is not very well known Kendalls Cemetery ..blue lights twice there as a teenager...scared me but not enough to not go back..i found it peacefull .Not so peacefull dodging the cows when they had calves lol.

The geology of an area with the different formations & rock underneath will definitely create an energy that could produce paranormal activity but i also think from my own experience that sometimes with some people if they dont get a handle/understanding  on what they are experiencing it could drive you nuts...& the reactions could be devastating. Well my opinion anyway.

This post has excited me lol.
Intense awareness in the moment is the way of the Warrior.

Everyone to their own..Namaste.
