It caught my interest because I seem to recall a member of this board....maybe Christine...catching something in a mirror when they went there.

Yes we did catch something weird in the mirror.
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.

That makes the footage a bit more credible I think.

the mirror was interesting, the shadow in the ballroom still could have been someone walking outside the window on the opposite wall..

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...

It was a very big room, I doubt a shadow would reach so far up the wall

if the sun was low in the sky..ie sunset time, then its possible, and the light from the windows was reasonably bright on the walls but its one of those things you'd have to be there to test the theory and debunk it..lol... (i want to go and see now)

Yeah, I have never been myself and its only about 2 hours from my mums place.  I would love to go with the gang lol, I missed out last time.  I didn't know anyone then and TC didn't want me hooning all over the country with a group of 'kooks!'

We could go when we do our trip CE.

I had a closer look at the video. I am not sure I can believe it. Was it a co-incidence that he panned on the wall with the shadow at the moment the shadow walked past?

That house gets very busy as well. It's self tour there now. You  can't eliminate the fact it could have been another person seen in the mirror.

The area was too unsecure.

The other point is the owners have a financial interest in selling tickets and that is a powerful motivator. Whilst I am not saying they made the clip, they might certainly have encourgaed it to be made.

Anything on U tube has to be suspect.  but like I said it caught my interest because it 'mirrored' (pardon the pun) the experience of people from here.

From memory we had white flashes in the mirror but black figures in the house. It's a shame all that information was lost to the old board.

I wouldn't mind going if there's a gtg - its only a few hours drive from Canberra.
I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my souls on the other side.
