Is the Overlander Hotel in South Australia haunted? Many who visit believe so, and this ghost photo causes many to wonder.
Built in 1859, this historic hotel has been home to drovers, overlanders, and beer. The hotel is built on the site of Overland Corner, which was a resting place for drovers (men who move livestock). The Brand brothers, who built the hotel, are pictured in the ghost photo. Famous for ghost activity, the Overland Hotel is believed to be haunted by the ghost of the man with beard whose head appears up top and to the left in the photo. Ghost stories abound, but is this ghost photo proof of the hotel being haunted? If so, then it has been haunted for over 150 years
Do you see a bearded man peering over the shoulder of the dark-haired gentleman? Many believe this to be an authentic ghost photo. It still hangs inside the haunted hotel...
As always feel free to comment on this famous Australian 'Ghost' photo! Ghost or not? Maybe your mind playing tricks on your vision?
I've just finished reading a book that literally fell into my lap - yeah, right! - written by British Psychic, Derek Acorah. An easy read with some 'Wow' factors. Derek reminds us that Spirit encounters can be just as hair raising and dangerous as walking through some of our toughest neighbourhoods. 'Extreme Psychic', takes us into the world of Residual Energy, Spirit disturbances and Spirit attacks on the land, on the sea, in well known insitutions and the everyday household.
We can get used to nice messages from the Spirit World that we overlook the confusion that can occur for a being when a traumatic event causes their physical death. We forget that though people - and indeed animals - may 'survive' trauma there is an imprint of energy that is left which remains for many years.
'Extreme Psychic', left me wanting more. I related to much of what Derek was saying and have experienced some similar events mentioned in the book. I for one will be looking out for more of Derek's books.

Have you see this video posted on the 'video' page?
It's a video of Craig that was taken during an investigation of 'The Hero of Waterloo' Hotel in The Rocks, Sydney.
The video shows Craig trying to make contact with a spirit named 'Lilly'. You can see a light anomoly streak past him and he reacts as if something has touched him.
Craig claims to have felt something brush the back of his head. He claims it felt like a hand brushing past.
Do you think it is paranormal activity... or a coincidence that a light anomoly was caught as Craig reacted to something else?
A full article on this topic is located on the 'Paranormal News' page.
The photo was taken in January, 2010.
What do you think? Are the ghosts of children who died 60 years apart still roaming the cemetary?
Get ready Picton, because W.S.P.R will be spending some good quality time visiting over the next several months. It's claimed to be the 'most haunted' town in Australia!
Nicky and Craig have investiagted in Picton with some amazing results.
Back to the photo... What do you think? It could've been quite easy to miss, or not see living children in this cemetary. Some of the tombstones and quite high which would block the view of the photographer.
Supernatural or Natural - I'm going with........... 'Natural'.
We are incredibly excited to 'welcome' Steve to our team. We can't wait to get out into the field and get our "hands dirty" with him. Steve brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to W.S.P.R.
Steve will become a co-founder of W.S.P.R, due to his help and diligence in getting this organisation off the ground, along with being an investigator and also our resident clarevoyant and psychic.
Join us as we delve into the world of the paranormal. We here at W.S.P.R are always in search of the truth behind any paranormal event or claim.
This is a topic 'everyone' is interested in, believer or skeptic - whether you've seen a ghost or not. So you are all 'welcome' here.
Feel free to comment on anything that interests you, just remember "play nice".
We hope you enjoy your travels through the paranormal with us.
