Canberra most haunted?

[First filed: July 14, 2008]

Blogger Kristine has been digging around Canberra’s ghost stories and has decided Canberra is the most haunted place in Australia.

perhaps the most fiendish of all Canberra’s ghosts, though, comes from the National Film and Sound Archive, which is built on the site of the former National Institute of Anatomy. It has been reported that many people who visit the basement area, have been pinned up against the wall by an unknown force!!

Most haunted? Or most populated by people who want to believe?

UPDATED: Reader Queanbeyan posted the following:

    Information for all who dare to attend the so called haunted house in Michalego. This is NSW Police, by entering this private property you are breaking the law. If caught you will be charged, it is an offence to tresspass on private property. NSW police will be conducting regular patrols of the above and surrounding areas. You have been warned !!!!!

His email makes it look legit.

UPDATED AGAIN: More cool Canberra ghost stories have been posted recently!

V8-Prius: whilst i may not be a policeman (are you?), this does seem like a warning that would be releasedor the type of warning that they would give spelling mistakes or not. All i asked you to do was explain yourself which you seem inable / unwanting to do.

“no doubt that it could be authentic”?

FAIL.

can V8-Prius explain this to me:

If caught you will be charged, it is an offence to tresspass on private property. NSW police will be conducting regular patrols of the above and surrounding areas. You have been warned !!!!!

if it was not the police then who wrote this and where did it come from? I have no doubt that it could be authentic but i am wondering who you are quoting.

I love this stuff…

I’ve heard stories about the panther..near Camp Cottermouth and have also been told of one stalking the paddocks near Tarago.

at gininderra falls, the owner had a few sheep almost bitten in half – no idea what had done it, but there was a report of wild dogs in the area. We all decided that the dog that was doing it had to be huge. never thought about a big cat. The spoor that was left didn’t look like a dog’s, as the claws weren’t showing.

Uriarra crossing YMCA camp had a couple of sightings, but we leaders never followed it up, I mean, if it was a big cat, what would stop it feeding on humans?

No way a piggie wrote this. Some of the words have more than one syllable.

but they can’t spell MICHELAGO….
obviously don’t live there, then.

(however I stand corrected).

I thought for it to be trespass you had to be asked to leave, and refuse.

i know that there was an old mining operation going on there many decades ago. I did not know that it was the UFO capital (apparently thats meant to be Lawson in belco). Does anyone know about the old (abandoned) houses out there?

& Lake George has one of the largest number of reported UFO sightings in the world.

Peterh: I think Paul is just a one log in wonder. Any comment Paul?

I have heard of a big old house near Lake Gearge that also fits all the criteria and it is apparently abandoned, and for a long time too.

don’t get me started on lake george.

what with people disappearing out on the lake, the freak hurricane that blew up in the 1900’s, the guy that’s been seen sitting by the lake with a fishing pole, catching fish out of the grass – he can’t be seen at night, but on a foggy day, there he is…

The boys and girls in blue had a 4wd parked in front of the house in Michelago on Monday afternoon, and were wandering up and down apparently looking for someone or something.

Or maybe they were just too chicken to jump the fence………

The area around the Bogo quarry near the Burrunjuck turn off on the other side of Yass is rumoured to be haunted.
In the 1800’s a lady and her children were murdered by an Irish farm hand with an axe while her husband was away. The Irishman walked to Binalong to hand himself in and was later hanged and the woman’s ghost is said to haunt the area.
My grandparents both swear they once saw her standing on the side of the Hume Highway when they were on the way home from a fishing trip at the dam and over the years a number of truckies have also reported seeing a lady in a white dress standing by the side of the road late at night. Weird stuuf apparently happens at the quarry from time to time although I have a mate who worked there for a while and we didn’t see anything.

Apparently Holt has a good number of pioneer cemetaries that have been covered over and made into parks. It is possible as this used to be a large privately owned property.

Peterh:
Evatt cemetary (easier to call it that) was bulldozed over in 1970. The driver of the dozer was hesitant to do the job and there were protesters, however due to the advanced deterioration of the site as well as the vandalism it was covered over. Apparently there is also some Aboriginal bodies (2) buried there too. There was also a church on that site too.

well that makes me feel less comfortable about what i saw, but I will probably think more about it when i am taking out the bins at midnight tonight – cue hair standing up on the back of my neck….

re: Jb’s update about the Michelago house being an act of trespass…

That sounds about right, and its neat that the NSW police read us the RiotACT.
Although apparently we were at one time responsible for sending people out there.
See this old story, and scroll down to where user Paul starts talking (and then calling me a drongo).

Skidbladnir, only, as he says – its easier to spell. though why he would be spelling your name when he could just Cut and paste is beyond me. (I did)

My friend used to reside on a rental property on Conlon Crescent in Theodore. One night she decided to clean the house and in the reflection of the sliding door in the family room she saw a reflection of someone standing next to her, she looked behind her and there was no one physically there. It happened again in another window in the living area of the house. She also told me that when she walked in the hallway of the house she has felt someone walking right behind her…
