Headless Ghost of Windang Beach: Windang NSW
« on: April 10, 2020, 01:20:52 PM »
Headless since 1950 this ghost has been reported lurking around twilight on cold winters night on the beach at Windang New South Wales. Who was this strange spectre haunting this south coast beach.

I first heard of this story told like and urban myth through various forums. One account claimed even a few years ago the spook was seen wandering aimlessly along the beach just before darkness.

To witness horror they saw the apparition had no head.

To be continued.....

One such witness named Catherine now a mother of three daughters over 10 years ago claimed her and boy friend was beach fishing one evening after sunset. There was chill in air from onshore breeze and light was fading fast. While there had been joggers and the old one or two people walking their dogs on the beach earlier by the time the sun had gone down they had been left alone with chill on the beach from the cool autumn breeze.

While she walked back to the tackle box a few metres away from her boy friend  she noticed a figure slowly wandering about if intoxicated or under the influence of drugs? It was sudden unexpected appearance of this figure as she had been looking out up and down the beach earlier and saw no one although it was getting dark.

It as you would imagine startled her at first and she beckoned her sighting to her boyfriend who also noticed this figure wandering aimlessly up the beach. It was this zig zag walk or shuffle as they called it, made the pair become alarmed that it might be drunk or drug addict wanting to create trouble. But as the figure in dark was indistinct they could only see this figure ambling towards them.

At first it appeared as the approaching figure slowly came into focus that the figure seemed it was hunched over like stooping looking for some thing. But as the figure came into view they make out what was to them a boil type overalls the figure was wearing. It a moment  came the realization this figure did not have a head.

Catherine said she did not know who screamed loudest her or her boyfriend. They just bolted from the beach in terror leaving all there finishing gear behind. To this day Catherine shakes her head this figure did not have a head.

That was several years ago and to this day she will not step one foot on that beach after dark.

But it was not the only two who have seen this apparition? Another 2 teenage girls from Berkeley  a nearby suburb and claimed they saw a headless figure wandering aimlessly in the twilight near Windang island. Those two posted online somewhere about the encounter.

I am not sure if they just repeated the encounter as their story or had a their own encounter?

However there was a retired Mechanic living in Primbee who fished the beach at night and claimed he had fished at night there many times for years and never encountered anything. Until one even just after sunset in Autumn encountered beach fishing a figure wandering up the beach. A first thought he thought it was just some guy metal detecting as the figure seemed aimlessly searching for some thing as he came into view.

As he got closer in dark he was horrified that the figure had no head!

But more terrifying of all the figure walked right through him like if was not there? Stunned and petrified he watched the figure wander aimless up the beach towards Port Kembla.

In 1950 RAAF 8 Mustang fighter Planes from 78 Squadron based at Williamstown was flying tactical  combat training off the Shellharbour NSW just south of Wingdang beach while tragedy struck. Two Mustang fighters collided.

Both pilots was killed. There bodies was not recovered except that some fish boats recovered pieces of floating records.

You can see the carin post newspaper story below dated November 1950. For those who cannot I suggest joining the wonderful forum so you see extra things related to these stories.

An to those inclined to see such wandering spirits take heed perhaps on encountering Angus during the last glimmers of twilight on that windswept beach is say to the headless figure "hey Angus your dead mate"

A very interesting tale KANACKI, one which reconfirms that ghosts/spirits who don't know they have died continue to "mimic" human traits, i.e., aimlessly wandering like a living person who cannot see.

As you said in the last Post that the best thing a person could do if they see the ghost of Angus wandering the beach to try and communicate with him that he has died and needs to move on.

Hello Simon would this spirit possibly decapitated during a horrific plane crash be conscious on people around his wanderings year later after he is dead?

I would say so KANACKI, remember the decapitation is a physical one only, but until someone reaches out to this poor soul and tells him he is dead, he will continue meandering along the beach looking for his missing head.
