THE old Quarantine Station in Munster is steeped in history and, according to spiritual medium Rebecca Millman, some of the people who shaped its rich past more than a century ago continue to live there.
Built in 1886 to isolate and cremate victims of the plague and other contagious diseases, Millman believes that some spirits are confused about their deaths and have refused to cross over.
The Yangebup resident is holding two overnight ghost tours this month to give groups an experience that goes beyond the physical plane.
“The tours help to show people that there is more to this physical plane and that there is a realm out there,” she said.
“The spirits on this site are not aggressive spirits, they are more like a community – they interact and communicate with each other.
“We tend to get spirit lights and independent voices; there's a spirit that likes to groan and you can hear it quite clearly and you can also hear footsteps up the hall – people have even experienced physical touch.
“Often when people come on the tour they are a little bit sceptical, but afterwards they come away saying doors have been opened up for them in terms of what is possible.”
