Bust­ing the ghosts of Childers

Isis Town and Country - - News -

OVER the years, Town and Coun­try has cov­ered dozens of sto­ries on the ghosts of Childers, haunting the old build­ings and leav­ing lo­cals spooked.

Rick Bur­den, the founder of Ghost Hun­ters of Aus­tralia, has agreed to make the jour­ney from Bris­bane to in­ves­ti­gate the ghostly en­coun­ters in Childers.

“Thanks for con­tact­ing us, more than happy to help,” he said.

Mr Bur­den said his team had all the equip­ment needed for any supernatural in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

His team known as DUST (Down Un­der Spirit Team) has a long list of equip­ment to cap­ture all ghostly hap­pen­ings.

The equip­ment con­sists of nine cam­eras, six au­dio recorders, two full-spec­trum video cam­eras, one full-spec­trum still cam­era, trig­ger props, mon­i­tors, EMF de­tec­tors and de­vices and tem­per­a­ture de­tec­tors.

“We can help and will­ing to make the jour­ney to in­ves­ti­gate,” Mr Bur­den said.

“Are you af­ter pure tech­ni­cal or psy­chic or a com­bi­na­tion of both, as we have all the equip­ment?” The in­ves­ti­ga­tion will be closely fol­lowed by Town and Coun­try, with the sup­port of other re­porters to as­sist with record­ing and doc­u­ment­ing all ac­tiv­ity.

Mr Bur­den said: “We don’t ask for pay­ment or money for the equip­ment, we only ask for ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“Satur­days are the best for us as we all have fam­i­lies and kids to deal with.”

With the men­tion of ghostly hap­pen­ings in Childers, DUST wanted to put its gear straight to work and bust the ghost sto­ries of Childers.

The Grand Ho­tel has agreed to take part in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and has of­fered the team a place to stay.

Do ghosts re­ally haunt build­ings or are they sto­ries passed down gen­er­a­tion af­ter gen­er­a­tion?

Rick and his team of ghost hun­ters are on standby and ready to take a trip to Childers.
