Thumper’s inaugural ghost tour

Okay folks,

I was hoping that someone else would organise this. However, I’m keen to get something up and going at sometime soon.

First of all I can’t, due to various other engagements and responsibilities, put forward a date as yet although I was thinking of a Monday night or a Friday night. Secondly, I’d like to finish off somewhere near a pub so i can have a beer.

Thirdly, below are the sites I have in mind. Some we can visit, others we’ll just have to look at or hang around outside. No matter, as some of the places simply look spectacular anyway. Also, a few of the places may be difficult to access and I’m not even sure if some places are haunted or not although I’m sure they will give some people the heebee geebees.

Thus, the sites are:

St Johns Church and grounds, Reid (Old church and graveyard, but maybe not accessible after hours)
All Saints Church, Ainslie (As above, but we could stand out the front and check it out)
Weetangera Cemetary, Higgins/ Hawker (Private property but who cares and easy access)
St Paul’s cemetary, Evatt (Easy access)
Air Disaster memorial, Fairbairn ? (Access is difficult, i think you have to walk there now)
Gold Creek gallery, Gold Creek (Private gallery but owner says it is haunted)
Schrivener dam (not really haunted, but spooky anyway)
Old Parliament House (We can walk around it at night)
Old Brickworks, Yarralumbla (Not sure if we could get access)
Blundell’s Cottage (Again, access but certainly can wander around it)
Duffy Creek, Duffy (Not sure about this one, easy access but haunted?)

Any other places that can be added?

I would suggest at this stage something like this;

All Saints Church
Blundells Cottage
Scrivener Dam
Weetangera Cemetary

(Pot Belly, or other establishment)

Feel free to put out obviously flaws, etc, or better ideas.

What’s Your opinion?
