Can an old gold mining area still be haunted?
Join Newcastle Ghost Tours and Frightfully Good Tours & Events as they take you into Copeland Tops State Conservation Area on a ghost hunt like no other.
We hope the dark doesn't scare you!
In 1876 first discovered gold at Copeland. People came from everywhere once the word got out and soon the population exploded to 1,100 inhabitants with three pubs and 4 stores turning the area into a scene from a wild west movie.
First up the tour will visit the Gloucester Museum to see artifacts and learn about life during the gold rush. Silent vigils will help us find out if some of the museum pieces can act as trigger objects to attract spirits and some, well, may well be still possessed with the energies of their owners.
WE MEET HERE: GLOUCESTER MUSEUM ADDRESS: 12 Church Street Gloucester
We then venture out to Mountain Maid gold mine, deep in the forests of Copeland Tops. We will explore an old historic building where miners stayed overnight in the last years of the working mine site and get up close and personal to old machinery, calling out to the ghosts amongst the over grown tracks as the world of the miners opens up to us using portal devices.
Can you still hear their voices and the noise of the rock crushing machines?
