Hunt­ing ghosts for a cause this Fri­day

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A BUS group will tour Monto to­mor­row to track down fa­mous ghosts.

The tour, which starts at 5.30pm, will cost $20 a per­son, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­ward the Queens­land Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion Pub­lic Ru­ral Cri­sis fund.

Monto Eastern Or­der Ser­vice’s wor­thy ma­tron Michele Goody called it a first for the town.

“Hope­fully we’re not go­ing to scare the pants off ev­ery­body,” she said.

The tour will take par­tic­i­pants around the area’s hotspots of para­nor­mal ac­tiv­ity, in­clud­ing the Monto Colo­nial Inn, Mulgildie Ho­tel and, of course, the Monto Ceme­tery.

Mulgildie Ho­tel is well-known for its ghostly phenomenon, with re­ports of haunt­ing in the ladies’ bath­room.

The Colo­nial Inn is said to be haunted by the ghost of it’s pre­vi­ous owner.

Also on the tour is the Bun­yip Hole out at Mulgildie, a slime-cov­ered pond that hides a myth­i­cal bun­yip.

Come along and bring your phones, be­cause an evening of ghost-hunt­ing awaits.
