Amanda Keller’s Scary Night Out in the Blue Mountains!
Owned and operated by Peter and Glenne Clifford, Blue Mountains Mystery Tours has conducted tours and events in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area since 2002.
Of the experience, Pete said, “We were filming our Blue Mountains Ghost Tour which visits some of the Mountains most haunted sites. A few Paranormal experiences did happen on the night which really got the crew looking over their shoulders.”
When asked by Amanda, whether there was much paranormal activity in the Blue Mountains, Pete said, “Oh yes. We’ve got sites where people were chained up, locked, whipped, beaten ... built the roads ... as convicts” and apparently, these ghosts remain.
Pete took Amanda into Hartley Courthouse, one of Hartley’s most haunted buildings, to visit Magistrate Thomas Brown who has been known to breathe down the back of people’s necks while they’ve been sitting in the docks, or put his hand on their shoulder.
While visiting the courthouse cells Amanda asked, “What was the creepiest thing you’ve ever seen in here?“,“I had a police officer in here one night who was just picked up by the neck and thrown against the wall like that,” Pete said.
From the Courthouse, they wandered over to Hartley cemetery to visit the most famous Blue Mountains ghost, known as “The Lady in Black”, Caroline Collets, who was murdered in the 1840s and is believed to still haunt the graveyard to this day.
Pete thoroughly enjoyed the experience. “The crew were so professional & nothing was a problem, the episode is absolutely outstanding & we were so happy to be part of the Show.”
“It was so much fun showing off The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Wilderness Area, Hartley Historic Village & its Ghosts. Amanda Keller is just how you see her on TV very funny, smart & beautiful. She made our guests feel relaxed throughout the shoot, I still have her finger nail marks on my arm.”
You can watch the episode of The Living Room via the Ten Play website. Pete and the Blue Mountains Mystery Tour appear 14 minutes in.
