Join the team at Twisted History for the night of All Hallows’ Eve at one Victoria’s most haunted hotels followed by a lantern tour of the Blackwood Cemetery.
Nestled in the Wombat State Forest, the town of Blackwood has an interesting past from the early days of the Victorian Gold Rush to the present. This hotel opened in 1868 and quickly became the heart of the community. Being the office of the Cobb and Co, coroners court and even the town morgue. This building has seen more than its fair share of death and claims a number of resident ghosts which makes it perfect to investigate.
Laura Dalton lies in an unmarked grave in the Blackwood Cemetery, after an accident at the Blackwood Hotel. Laura was the single mother of two young children earning her keep as part of the domestic staff at the Hotel. In 1948 she was using a petrol iron in the kitchen when it exploded, severely burning the young woman, where she would die of her injuries the following day. Over the years many people have claimed to see Laura at the Blackwood Hotel.
Start the evening with a meal before beginning the investigation of the parlour, dining room, cellar and more before a tour of the hilltop cemetery. Groups will be provided with night vision cameras, infra red goggles, laser grid, emf detectors, spirit box, motion sensors and a range of other equipment.
