Blue Mountains - NSW - Ghost tour/Investigation
« on: October 07, 2009, 08:00:29 PM »
Hi, if anyone is interested in a ghost tour with a difference ie bit of investigating - then check this website out below. They have something called their 'Psychic Fright Night' which includes a buffet dinner and desert plus a 20mins psychic reading for each person. You can also bring your own equipment on the tour!

There is the option to book accommodation too.

http://www.bluemountainsmysterytours.com.au/halloween.htm

The dates they have so far are (all saturdays):
17 Oct
21 Nov
19 Dec

I'm not plugging a friends business or anything as I honestly dont know the person who runs this. I'm just a fan of those kind of events which encourage other interested people (especially those who want to investigate) to get together.

I'm booked to go to the 21 Nov one - so may see ya there!

Thanks!
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.

Sound great.  I love the scenic railway and the cable car when I was a kid (back in the age of the dinosaurs).  The cable car looks all brand new and modern now.  Lol.   No matter how you see it, the scenery there is amazing.  Plus there are a number of great old cemeteries around, plus legends gallore, and I suspect the fright tour takes in a few of them.

Guess what guys.... the company has had to cancel these nights!!! noooooooo.... he's had trouble with the '3rd parties' involved in the night.

He was really apologetic about it...might get myself on one of their regular ghost tours anyway....

The guest house is no longer on the tour. That was the best location by far! Apparently tour participants were going back in their own time and conducting their own investigations to the annoyance of the owner. I went on the tour for the 2nd time in August and it wasnt as good as good as it was 12 months ago. You go to "hanging tree" and some old unmarked graveyard instead now and you dont get supper anymore. Still the same price at $75 a head. I had two good experiances on my last tour. The EMF meter started vibrating in my hand and I went to tell everyone we had some activity when I quickly realised that these things light up, they dont vibrate....lol. The 2nd one was that my camera went of on its own 2-3 times in the graveyard at Little Hartley. When I checked the picks, I captured the outline of what looks like a man in a top-hat. Pete had said a man in a top-hat haunts that graveyard. Is there anyway I can post that pick here?

Jugstar, if you do a search on here you'll probably find a section on how to post pics. 

Basically you first have to upload your pics onto one of the image hosting sites like photobucket, and from there you'll be given codes, ie. the img code that you insert into your post here with the pics.

Hey Karen007,
The q station do a sleep over thing now called 'ghosty sleepover'.

should be listed here:
http://www.qstation.com.au/experience/tours.php

Its $155 and on the 3rd Friday of each month.

I've been thinking of going for a while...not sure about the 'bring your own sleeping bag' kinda thing. Not fussed with sleeping in a sleeping bag, just not keen about potentially being on a concrete floor - burrr...

Cheers,
Sare

Im planning on doing the QS this year some time! Looking forward to it after seeing it on GHI. The price for the Blue mountains one isnt too bad considering they drive you around in a mini bus for 4-5 hours. Still, a bit steep for a ghost tour though. It is still the best tour I have been on so far. So far I have done the Picton Tour which was good in parts but the guide (Danni) was saying what was quite clearly  dust in peoples photos were spirits ect, so she lost my respect and all credibility right from the start. The Bartholeoms Church tour was cheap ($10) and is worth going but the lady who hosts the tour (Hazel) seems to dramatise everything when nothing is actually happening. Another good tour is through lower Hobart. Although there wasnt much activity, the tour was very well run and gave a great history of the area. By far the worst tour I went on was the Port Arthur Tour. It was very rushed and we were made to feel very uncomfortable by the guide if we took photos. The guide also went out of his way to scare my fiance, after I had earlier explained to him is very sensitive to spiritual things when he picked her as a lamp bearer.He nearly had her in tears He also spoilt the tour by telling us at the end that he had never seen anything paranormal on a tour???? lol. Im really looking forward to the QS tour though and might even do the one at the Rocks soon too!

Wow, that's a shame.  Things must have gone downhill in the last ten years or so.  It used to be brilliant.  We walked all over the site for several hours, with supplied lanterns and torches.  We stayed at each part of the site until everyone was ready to leave, and our guide was actually offering to take photos of people together.  There was no rush at all, despite that we walked all over the place, from the old houses on the higher street, right down past the old church, and over to the penetentiary, and then up to the psychiatric wards on the hill. 

Maybe the almighty dollar is now influencing the tours - which is why they may be shorter in distance and time, and also why you may have been rushed if there are multiple tours going on.  When we were there, they had only one tour per night and it started around 9pm, because prior to that time, it was still too daylight for it to be fun... much more fun for ghost tours to be in the dark, obviously.

Its run like a production line and a business now. You cant go too fast or you'll catch the group in front, and cant go too slow because the group behind will catch up. Its kinda "get em in, get em through, get em out" kinda thing....lol. The guides also dont seem to have a genuine interest in the paranormal which takes away from it. All the other tours ive been on, the guides seem to have a genuine interest in paranormal and that makes the tour more interesting for everyone.

Oh wow. That's horrible.  There was only one group each night, when we went.  So we had the whole of the site, to explore, in the dark, for several hours.  It was great.
