DO you ever hear children playing when you’re all alone?
Do you detect sour smells you can’t explain or do your doors keep slamming?
If so, you might benefit from the free services of Kade Jones and Lara Jeffcoat, of Haunted Australia.
Mr Jones, who has researched ghosts in Tasmania, recently moved to Mackay and is looking for potentially haunted locations to explore.
“It’s an obsession, basically,” Mr Jones said. “We research potentially haunted locations. It’s not a fact of just saying ‘hey, there’s ghosts’. You’ve got to delve into the history and find out what has happened there.

He also investigates places on his own, and claims he has photographed some orbs, which indicate ghost-like activity, in Mackay, including at the Sydney Street Markets, where the Mater Hospital used to stand.

“What we look for in an orb is concentric circles inside one another.
“If it’s just a normal haze or a blob we discard it there and then.”
