Toowoomba: Australia’s Most Haunted Town

Toowoomba has fast become Australia’s Most Haunted Town which has left many people wondering why?

Many residents of this Queensland town named Toowoomba have reported many encounters with ghosts and other supernatural occurrences.

There have been so many reports that teams of ghost hunters has set up shop in this quite town of 150,000 about 125km west of Brisbane.

One group called Toowoomba Ghost Chasers have travelled around Toowoomba and said, “We have found Toowoomba is full of ghosts.”

The groups founder Ms. Samuels said that her team has photographs, videos and audio recordings of numerous ghosts which are posted on the group’s Facebook page.

Earlier this year, the group made front page news with a video posted showing the moment a spirit was seen floated across a backyard.

In the video a shadowy figure emerge from nowhere and then move around before disappearing.

Ms Samuels said, “I haven’t seen anything like it in a long time. It has to be something. There is no other explanation that we can come up with.”

Locals have also joined the hunt including Aaron Mulligan, who set his sights on detecting the town’s famed ‘lady in the red dress’ ghost who he believes to be Elizabeth Perkins, a resident who died in 1944.

Mr Mulligan told Daily Mail Australia that he went to the train station and called out the names of people he believed died nearby, and could possibly be haunting the area.

He went on to say that a lot of people have been killed at that station, Elizabeth Perkins was one. Using a K2 meter, he recorded changes in ‘electromagnetic energy’ and when he called her name the K2 meter lit up.

He then asked if it was Elizabeth Perkins and he said, “There were footsteps and she definitely walked past.”

Aaron went on to say he was once a funeral director which started his interest in the supernatural and he now has hundreds of investigations under his belt.

Another resident, Daniel Prentice, claims he was attacked by a spirit in a cemetery.

He said, “I was walking through like I do quite often, and there is a certain spot in there that I always get some strange feelings.”

“That particular night we decided to stop there and investigate further. I started to become a little frustrated because I knew something there.”

“Next thing I know I got pushed from a seated position in the middle of my back and I slid across the ground on my feet. I had marks on the middle of my back where I was pushed.”

In 2013, paranormal investigator Darren Davies studied the Royal Bulls Head Inn, a popular pub in the Toowoomba which is said to be haunted.

Speaking to the Toowoomba Chronicle, Mr Davies said, “We have uncovered a lot, and not all of it is nice. In fact, it has quite a dark history.”

“There have been a number of sudden as well as natural deaths at the Inn.”

Aaron Mulligan believes there are so many ghosts haunting Toowoomba is because of it’s violent past, saying, “It’s one of the oldest towns in Queensland, and it has a violent past, it’s was like the wild west.”
