CITY of Gos­nells’ pop­u­lar Ghost Walks event is re­turn­ing for a brand new sea­son.

Guided tours in the scenic Or­ange Grove hills al­low groups to soak in tales about the roam­ing spir­its of pi­o­neer tim­ber mill work­ers who lived in the dis­trict in the 1860s.

The first, a walk from Vic­to­ria Dam to the Bick­ley Re­serve, is on Novem­ber 3.

City of Gos­nells lo­cal his­tory li­brary as­sis­tant Mar­garet Le­fevre has been in­stru­men­tal to Ghost Walks’ suc­cess and said the walk pro­vided par­tic­i­pants with stun­ning views of Perth.

“Ghost Walks can be en­joyed by the whole fam­ily, and they are an en­ter­tain­ing way to learn about lo­cal his­tory and pi­o­neer char­ac­ters in a beau­ti­ful set­ting,” she said.

Book­ings es­sen­tial. The City will host other walks on De­cem­ber 1, Fe­bru­ary 2 and March 2.
