Port Arthur Ghosts
In 1833 Tasmania’s Port Arthur became a prison settlement for male convicts. Hundreds died in those early decades, but some wonder if a few of those old souls haven’t stuck around. Tour Guide Todd Darling believes there are ghosts and says, “You have to wonder how it is that people who don’t know each other and don’t know the story, from different places in the world, have come and seen the same thing ten years apart.”

Disappearing Islanders
In the early twentieth century a Pathé newsreel team visited an island in the north of Western Australia and made a film about the "giants" who lived there. Although this community has been identified, the people have since disappeared. What happened to them is still unknown.

Ufo Man
Those with an enthusiasm for Unidentified Flying Object research have called Colin Norris Mr UFO. After devoting more than fifty years of money, effort and even blood to the cause, Colin believes we are being watched.

Lawrence Leung
Lawrence Leung, 26, is a comic, writer, director, psychology graduate and occasional ghost hunter. Lawrence was a sceptic from a young age, for some reason not believing in Santa. Of late he has been entertaining audiences at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Festivals with his comic, supernatural-debunking show, ‘Sceptic’.
