Tour hosts Mary Widow and Hutton the Hangman have been terrifying tourists and locals alike on the Ghostly Tours for years, and admit some of the supernatural phenomena truly has to be seen to be believed.
“We’ve often seen eerie red orbs glowing behind the trees at the Pioneer Cemetery,” Mary said.
“There have even been reports of a child following the tour group around Monumental Cemetery, when there were no children on the tour!”
“It’s a lot of frightful fun, but it’s not for the faint hearted.”
The tours are often booked months in advance but places are still available for the next tour on Saturday, May 25, starting at 6pm from the Maryborough Post Office.
“The tour also includes a fantastic meal at the Post Office Hotel, followed by dessert at Mary Delicious.”
Bookings are essential and can be made at the Maryborough Visitor Information Centre, City Hall or by calling 1800 214 789.
