Ghostbusters spooked by homestead

AN historic Murwillumbah homestead has spooked a couple of Gold Coast ghost hunters.

Paranormal investigator Judy Barr said a tour of the house in November presented her with activities she has not found an explanation for.

“On the recordings there were banging noises which we didn't hear when we were in the room,” Ms Barr said.

“We have some people looking at the recordings but no one has been able to come up with any explanation yet. It is certainly the strangest encounter yet.”

Ms Barr and her fellow investigator Marg Pettiona started Ghosts-Inc to gather information for a better understanding of ghosts, hauntings and other paranormal activity on the Gold Coast and Tweed.

“We met at work and discovered we both were interested in the paranormal,” Ms Barr said.

“We joined other groups but found they weren't what we were looking for so we decided to start our own group on the Gold Coast.

“We have five other people who help us out on investigations, and we go in looking for alternative reasons rather than searching for ghosts.”

The pair plan to write a book filled with Gold Coast and Tweed hauntings and are calling for people with experiences to contact them.

They plan to balance stories with investigations so readers could make up their own mind.

“We are looking for people who know of anything that has happened in residences or buildings on the Gold Coast or on the Tweed,” Ms Barr said.

“Even if people know about buildings that might be being looked after by council we are interested to know about them.”
