Why are the Min Min lights so mysterious? Is there really a Tasmanian bunyip? Where is Australia’s most haunted house or most haunted town? These stories range from poltergeists in tunnels beneath Sydney to ghost ships and spooky goings-on in disused gaols and historic penal settlements. There are yowies, a rash of ghosts in the nation’s capital, haunted shipwrecks, a glowing cross, a knife-throwing phantom and a variety of wandering beasties who infest the swamps, forests and highlands of Australia. Complete with full-colour photographs, illustrations and a comprehensive list of ghost tours, Haunted & Mysterious Australia is fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in things that go bump in the night – true believers and sceptics alike.
