Also, passersby report seeing apparitions in the window. The place is currently a function hall, but no one is allowed access to the staircase. The main gate closes by itself, and lights go on and off when there is apparently no one home.

Victoria - Melbourne - Sunshine - Ashley Hotel - Reported to be haunted by a manager working a graveyard shift after kicking a couple of drunken customers out of the hotel. He went down to the back of the hotel to dispose of the empty beer kegs, when he was brutality murdered and his body was left in one of the hotel rooms. Today, the hotel does not run open rooms, but the hotel is believed to be haunted with his presence. Lights turn on and off, plates clatter, things are moved around, and some have seen the apparition of this poor man.

Victoria - Melbourne - Sunbury - Salisian Bridge - Hundreds of years ago, a maid from Kismet Park Manor fell in love with the air to Salisian Manor. They used to meet near Salisian Bridge late at night when they couldn't be discovered. Eventually, the young man was to marry, but insisted he marry the maid instead, for he truly loved her. His family refused to ever let him see her again and he killed himself. The maid didn't find out for a while, and every night she continued to go to the bridge, where she waited for him. When she found out what happened to the young man, she killed herself too. Now, late at night, you can see her wandering around Salisian Bridge, looking for her lost love.

The camp was used as a residence. There have been sightings of a young girl in a 19th century nightgown. A heavy branch is said to break and fall off a tree near a gravestone in the old graveyard, without any wind to blow it off. The ghost of an electrocuted young man, whose body was buried under the floorboards of a house in the camp, is seen walking around and howling. This is a really scary place!

Western Australia - Albany - Salt Flats and Albany Family Christian Church - Deep holes are seen one day, and the next day they are gone(for the salt flats).
