Are you a history buff that likes a good spook along with your tales of days gone by?
We;; you’re in luck because this weekend, you will have the chance to learn all about the history of Morpeth – Australia’s oldest river port – with a healthy dose of paranormal activity thrown in for good measure.
Organised by Hunter Valley Ghost Tours, this ghost and heritage tour will spill on some of the spookiest tales of ghosts and hauntings, dark history, murder, and dark folklore.
Some of the tales you will become familiar with during this expose of Morpeth’s past include:
- A brutal murder/suicide involving unrequited love;
- The ill-tempered merchant who would throw his dinner crockery out the window of his home in a blind rage;
- The ghost who still haunts the corridors of the iconic Campbell’s Store;
- Finding out how a promise to God in the thick of battle led to the construction of St James’ church; and
- Discovering what sits beneath the foundation stone of many of the town’s most prominent buildings.
Your guide for this spooky tour, ghost guide Leonie will also give a quick introduction to paranormal investigation, theories, and techniques!
So if you think you’ve got what it takes to endure such a hair-raising experience, the Morpeth Ghost And Heritage Tour will kick off from 8.30pm on Saturday 25 January.
Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes and you might want to leave the kiddos at home for this one!
