Busting the ghosts of Childers
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.
