Ghost of a chance

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

GHOSTS could come out to play at Wood­man Point a lit­tle ear­lier than Hal­loween.

This week­end lo­cal medium Re­becca Mill­man will take a group of brave peo­ple on an overnight ghost tour of the Wood­man Point Quar­an­tine Sta­tion, re­ported to be one of the most haunted build­ings in the area.

The quar­an­tine sta­tion was es­tab­lished in the 1880s to iso­late im­mi­grants who were be­ing cleared of dis­eases rav­aging Europe and Asia such as small­pox and Span­ish in­fluenza.

Ms Mill­man said the spir­its of those who died of these con­ta­gious dis­eases were re­ported to haunt the area.

“There are young chil­dren, sailors, pa­tients and oth­ers which still ‘haunt’ and all call the quar­an­tine sta­tion home to this very day,” she said.

“A grumpy old sailor loves to let peo­ple know that he hated be­ing made to re­tire from the sea, young chil­dren spir­its can be heard play­ing and peo­ple feel them hold their hands.

“They have been wit­nessed by staff mem­bers, my­self and peo­ple at­tend­ing my tours. Peo­ple for­get they are hu­man and in­ter­act­ing with them in this way brings them great joy.”

She said this overnight hunt hap­pened only once a year and was a great op­por­tu­nity to see some­thing para­nor­mal.

“Dur­ing this event I give peo­ple the tools to help them to ex­pe­ri­ence first­hand para­nor­mal phe­nom­ena,” she said.

The overnight ghost hunt will be on Oc­to­ber 12 to 13. Visit­bec­ca­mill­ for de­tails or to buy tick­ets.­mu­ni­ d487406
