Paranormal Investigation with the REM-Pod Device

The REM-Pod is one of our Ghost hunting device choices we use here at the Geelong Gaol to capture spirit activity. The REM-Pod emits an ElectroMagnetic field and with its tall antenna therefore detects anything that moves into that field that then sets of the internal devices alarm. We place the RemPod in our field of Investigation; kitchen bench, Stairwells, Surgical table, Morgue Autopsy table to name a few, then if the device is triggered and we (the humans) are not in the vicinity of the device, neither bugs or debris of any kind, then we may class it as paranormal.

Via active Investigation we have had strong spirit evidence in the East Wing stairs where the RemPod alarm is most always triggered by the spirit of a little girl, in a cell on the third level where a convict spirit resides, is triggered in the Condemned Cell near the Gallows trapdoor and many other evidence based captures too.

If you would like to join the team at Twisted History on a Paranormal Investigation tour, we run seven nights a week using various ghost hunting devices. To book call 1300865800.

Sunday Paranormal Spot – K2 EMF Detector

We use the K2 as one of our most popular devices whilst Ghost Hunting to detect any Electro Magnetic Field that may be present, and the varied range of detection tells us how strong the field range is or its intensity. Once turned on the green light will be illuminated then once a EMF detection occurs the light illuminates according to the fields it has detected ranging up to the red 20milligawls of energy; an elecrto magnetic energy phenomena is given off when there is a Spirit around. We as Investigators, walk around with the device in our hand and place the device too on areas of interest: seats, walls, graves, shelves – anywhere we see fit during our investigation, with the hope that a detection will be made. We also call for any Spirits that can hear us to come forward and come close to us and the device and trigger the meter. We can also use this K2 device to actively communicate with us via triggering the device to our line of questioning as an answer to our enquiries. You will also see below we have used the K2 on an experiment in the Dentist Surgery where we have detected spirit and out line of questioning is asking the spirit to choose which substance he/they liked from our display on the floor- in this case Bourbon was chosen by lighting up the K2 which is situated on the left on the picture.

 

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live behind the walls of the Geelong Gaol, the most intact 19th century prison? The conditions, the executions, the punishments ……

Or perhaps investigating the paranormal is more to your liking? Do the spirits of those who lived, worked or died here still wander the halls …..

If you are brave enough to step behind the gates on one of our Ghost Tours or a Paranormal Investigations Tours, then please call 1300865800

We have a few ghost tours and a paranormal investigation under our belts now, so thought we would share!  Our ghost tours are running Wednesday to Sunday at 7pm and investigations at 8.30pm Saturday nights

 

On this day …….. 8th of December 1903

The residents of Snake Valley, in the Ballarat district, have been troubled, lately by a fowlyard thief, who is carrying on operations under the protecting influence of the flowing white robes of the traditional ghost. On this night in 1903 John Ryan endeavoured to recover a bird stolen from his yard, by pursuing the ghost with a stout stick. When the thief found his pursuer gaining upon him he drew a revolver and threatened to shoot if Ryan advanced. As the ghost apparently meant business, Ryan returned home

On this day …….. 4th of December 1886

Extraordinary ghost story

AN extraordinary ghost story has been doing the rounds of Horsham during the last day or two, the foundation for which, after due enquiry, we have been unable to trace. A man covered with a white sheet, with a black coffin on the back of it, is supposed to have made his appearance, and gone through a number of absurd antics. If anyone is fool enough to be acting in the manner referred to, we shall not be surprised to hear that he has been brought to his senses by a sound thrashing, or placed hors de combat by the contents of a revolver. People are not likely to be very particular in the means they use in bringing “ghosts” to their senses.

Who is brave enough to enter the gates of the Geelong Gaol tonight or tomorrow night. Be guided through the most intact 19th century prison, hearing stories of the prisoner conditions, executions, and of course the ghosts! Perhaps you will be lucky enough to encounter one of our spirits….

Or if the paranormal is more to your liking then join us on an investigation tonight at 9.30pm or tomorrow night at midnight, in search for the evidence that the paranormal truly does exist. Do you have what it takes to become a ghost hunter for the night.

To book your spot please call 1300865800 or book online at www.twistedhistory.net.au/book-now.html

ON THIS DAY…… 6th November 1920

SEEING A GHOST

Whether recent demonstrations by spiritualists in Melbourne or the defeat of the prohibition party at the polls, had an unsettling effect on the nerves of peaceable citizens cannot be definitely established said the Melbourne Age, but people in Abbotsford have been seeing a ghost. At any rate, they think they have seen one. A female apparition appeared at an old house in Nicholson Street, Abbotsford, and people have been flocking to the locality at night to see it. The ghost story, too, has improved with circulation, having gained, notoriety with additional details of a murder in the house, the periodical return of the murdered woman’s spirit, and so forth. The ghost was nothing more than a remarkable reflection thrown on the wall by a street lamp, the rays of which strike the verandah post and cast a reflection resembling a woman’s head. This reflection has been in existence for many years, but it is only within the past few days it has become the subject of much public interest. On this night in 1920, four police constables in Nicholson-street ”moving on’ the crowds of ghost seekers, who numbers were estimated, between 400 and 500 people.

ON THIS DAY…… 22nd October 1850

Francis Gardiner, love of crime began in Geelong, on the 22nd of October, 1850, on a charge of horse stealing, and sentenced to five years’ hard labour. However Gardiner manage to escape in the first few months and returned to Goulburn. Where his career as a bushranger began, for within two years he and his gang committed six mail robberies under arms, besides many others of lesser note. In June 1862 he bailed up the Lachlan Gold Escort near Eugowra with a gang including Ben Hall, Dan Charters and Johnny Gilbert. This hold up is considered to be one of the largest ever gold robberies in Australian history. The total value of the 2,700 ounces of gold and bank notes taken was estimated at £14,000 (approximately A$12.5 million in 2012 terms). Much of the gold was recovered by mounted police after they surprised the gang on Wheoga Hill near Forbes. What happened to the remaining gold is still the subject of much speculation and rumour. It is rumoured that two Americans who were thought to be Gardiner’s sons visited the Wheogo Station near the Weddins in 1912 claiming to be miners.
