Anyone aware of any ghost sightings on the Barton Highway?

wally11 16 April 2009 42

Almost 1 year ago my husband and my daughter and myself left our home on the southside of Canberra at about 5am heading out for a roadtrip to Adelaide.

The weather was foggy and somewhere between Gold Creek and the big ranch with the long white fencing and roses, my husband and I witnessed what we both believed to be a ghostly figure of a man crossing the road in front of our car, he appeared to be wearing jeans and was aged around 50-60 yrs old.

It was definitely a man who appeared transparent and crossed quickly directly in front of our car, had it been a live person my husband and I both believe we would have hit him! We were both a bit freaked but not scared and felt a very calm feeling at the time.

Does anyone have any info relating to sightings of ghosts along this stretch of the highway ?

That’s so weird me and my partner were travelling down the federal highway about two weeks ago about 15 km past the exit from gume to federal when a transparent type figure darted out onto the road and almost looked like it was trying to get out of our way when we collided with it and ran it over…I nearly lost control of our little yaris when we drove over it. We didnt mention anything to anyone until we found this post….

This is a strange thread. You have a posting by Wally 11 seemingly in good faith, followed by several narrow minded individuals ‘extracting the urine” and now its turned around to talk of a ghost hunting trip! Whatever your beliefs, few subjects on RA generate as much interest as the paranormal. (or is it normal?)

Me four – Thumper, I’m sick of waiting for this bloody book! You should turn it into a blog or some sort of newspaper serial – then you don’t need to write it all at once 🙂

Some guy at Ceroc the other night accused me of sucking his memory out. I thought that was kind of impressive and paranormal. He said, “You! It was you who I forgot all the moves with last time!”

Coincidence? I think not!

WTF? Random comma’s? I didn’t do that, I’m sure… it must have been the ghost in my PC.

Thumper – can I get an advance copy too? I lurve ghosty stuff.

BTW my wife used to run Collins Booksellers in the Mall for 17 years (i.e. when it was still a success – Collins not the mall) and may have some publishing contacts I can pass to you.

Oh, and when is the inaugural RA ghost hunting tour? We must be getting close now surely?

PS: sorry for seperating you from your partner in civic couple of weeks back I hope you found her!. I just thought I’d say ‘hi’ while you were passing, Granny and I.

Nyssa,

Not a chance. Contact JB for my email and I’ll send you what I’ve got. It’s not very good but it’s something 😉

Is that okay JB?
