The Third of a multi series taking Cachers on a Ghost Tour of Hobart
Tasmania is known as the Commonwealths most haunted state, and with the horrendous conditions of Port Arthur, Richmond and Salt River, it’s no surprise. This series, inspired by an incident at Gas Works Engineers, takes cachers on a tour of five well known hauntings in the Hobart area, and asks the question, “do you believe?”. Because of the stories of each area this series comes with an M rating….Horror Themes. Due to the placement and the aim of the series none of these caches can be completed during daylight hours. Caches one through four are micros and contain coordinates for cache five. The coordinates are painted on the inside lid in luminescent paint. To get the clue shine a bright light on the inside lid for about 20-30 seconds, then remove the light source. The numbers are not visible in daylight. To ensure the caches can be found glowing arrows will point the way and I guarantee a ghost at every cache.
The undercroft of Tasmania’s parliament house is said to be the home to a mysterious figure who walks silently in the shadowy recesses and when sighted vanishes!
Also in the house of assembly chamber, built in 1939 a patch of icy air known to people as Albert is said to reside, and has been seen frequently after dark, not only near the speakers chair in the chamber, but has been seen throughout the building. Until 1990 Tasmania Police officers were stationed at Parliament house during the night to ensure the security of the building, and it is well known that, due to previous events, the job was never given to a new constable, but rather to seasoned officers.
This cache is outside Parliament house grounds and out of sight of CCTV. However, Salamanca Place can get dodgy of a night time, be prepared to walk away.
