The ceme­tery haunted”.

Ka­rina said Room 12A where I had a slept, undis­turbed by phan­toms, was “ac­tive” dur­ing the night of May 2.

Ka­rina and her group of para­nor­mal de­tec­tives con­cluded in their re­port that the Im­pe­rial was haunted, as was the lo­cal church and the ceme­tery. As an aside the group

is

def­i­nitely has also found ghosts in Townsville’s Great North­ern, New­mar­ket and Sov­er­eign Ho­tels.

( The group will be sur­vey­ing the Rail­way Ho­tel for ghosts early next year).

“We do not be­lieve how­ever that any­one is any dan­ger and who­ever/ what­ever is haunting your premises is friendly and just seek­ing recog­ni­tion,” Kari- na wrote in the reeport she gave ve Im­pe­rial pub­li­cans ns Di and Johnn Schluter.

If we call Ravennswood a ghost town wn some res­i­dents will be out­raged.

They will phonene up and call your hum­ble cor­re­spon­dent all l sorts of nasty names and say there are peo­ple who live there and that it is their home. They will say it is a lovely lit­tle town, ex­cept for the feral pigs that come into the yards at night and eat their vegie crops.

Like it or lump it Ravenswood is a ghost town. So much so that Ghost Tours Pty Ltd which con­ducts night tours of Boggo Road jail and the Toowong Ceme­tery in Bris­bane are now tak­ing pay­ing clients to Ravenswood in search of these elu­sive spir­its.

I hope they have bet­ter luck than this failed ghost­buster.
