Dubbo’s paranormal side has landed us a spot on national television – something that’s bound to attract some sort of tourism to the city in the future.
Ghozt Crew the Documentary came to the Old Dubbo Gaol last Friday after psychics told them they believed there were “presences” there.
And apparently, the creators of the series, Rob Kerr, Josh O’Sullivan and Don Meers, did experience paranormal activity at the gaol.
Footsteps could be heard when they were standing in the padded cell, Rob said, and Josh said he felt something touch his leg.
The boys have set out to document what they believe to be the most compelling paranormal footage ever taken.
“You can be a total skeptic and have no belief in the paranormal at all and then something will happen to change your mind,” Rob said.
“A lot of people have had personal experiences. You might have felt something or had a whisper in your ear to let you know that they’re there.”
Whether you believe or not, the exposure is great for our city.
“We were drawn to Dubbo because our psychics said they believed there were presences here,” Rob said.
“One of them said she won’t come back,” Josh said.
For the Old Dubbo Gaol to stand alongside places like the Maitland Gaol, Monte Cristo – Australia’s most haunted house – is no mean feat.
“Part of our aim is to promote tourism in the different areas,” Rob said.
So let’s hope the series draws tourists to Dubbo, to see for themselves whether we are harbouring ghosts here.
