8) Ghost Tours at St Bartholomew’s Church and Cemetery.

It’s said to be a “Spooktacular Experience” where history buffs and paranormal enthusiasts alike get a spooky thrill at the regular St Bartholomew’s Church and Cemetery Ghost Tours.

The church dates back to 1841 and its cemetery contains the graves of many early settlers including explorer William Lawson. According to tour guides, there is one troublesome ghost at the site and tour participants have claimed to have been unable to move when they’ve approached his tombstone, while others have complained of nausea.
