Haunting Australia investigates North Kapunda Hotel

Located in South Australia, the North Kapunda Hotel opened in 1849 as a pub and hotel, and is famous for being the only place in Australia to have had the Riot Act read from its balcony.

It’s close proximity to the near by copper mines made the hotel a favorite spot for the local miners quickly becoming a ‘house of ill-repute’, where miners can have a girl, a meal, and a drink, then head back to work.

Now known as the most haunted pub in Australia, The North Kapunda Hotel is home to many ghost and spirits, thought to be ex-residents, publicans, ladies of the night, and miners. The activity in the hotel was recently documented on Haunting: Australia, including an alleged possession of one cast member.

Rayleen Kable, one of the members of the ghost haunting team, said that the most disturbing experience she has ever had was here at the notorious North Kapunda Hotel when a restless male spirit tried to attach itself to her in the hotel hallway.

“It was definitely a male spirit, but I wouldn’t say a happy male spirit,” she said.

Allen Tiller, leader of the group, said he and other tour guests had their own encounters with ghosts while at hotel. One guest even captured an image of what he believes is the ghost of a man standing the corner of the hotel’s basement.

Tiller said that the most interesting experience he had at the Kapunda Hotel was catching what he thinks is evidence of the ghost of a young girl named ‘Sarah’. The hotel was once a brothel, and legend says that a prostitute was murdered inside the hotel and her young daughter ‘Sarah’ was taken in by the hotel’s madam.

Tiller said, “I was closing up the top of hotel after a tour and I saw a little girl standing in hallway. She ran down the hall to take her out of the hotel and she looked solid… she was laughing.”

Adding, “She’s been seen multiple times.”

“You can say “Are you here Sarah?” and she’ll light up different devices.”
