LOCKYER Valley teenagers were treated to a unique view of local history on Saturday as they took part in the ultimate fright night.
The Gatton Bluelight Ghost Tour visited the memorial and murder sight of the infamous Gatton Murders victims, the Laidley cemetery, dumping sight of murder victim Clarisse Murphy in Glenore Grove and finished the night at the Forest Hill cemetery.
Gatton Police Constable Peter Grieger shared stories of sightings in the area, including the ghost of a woman at the Forest Hill cemetery who can be detected by the distinct smell of her perfume.
"A lot of these houses on this road can't be rented because people have seen too much out here," he said.
"There are a lot of children buried out here, and there are a few stories about sightings of children sitting on the graves."
The group were treated a few special touches to get the adrenalin pumping, including paranormal investigators, the shadow of a horse galloping across a Ghost Gully paddock, unexplained noises at the Forest Hill cemetery and a woman in white emerging from the trees as the bus was leaving the final stop.
Ghost Gully Produce owner Gary Samuelsen took the group through his property to the site where the bodies of Ellen, Norah and Michael Murphy were found in 1898.
Mr Samuelsen told the group about reported sightings of shadows moving behind trees and the sound of ghostly galloping coming from the neighbouring paddock that is supposed to house cattle only.
"I certainly don't like coming down here at night," he said.
He bought the property eight years ago and was well aware of its grizzly history.
"When we were younger we came down here for the hundred year anniversary to wait it out," he said.
"I didn't believe in anything like that before I came here. I was definitely sceptical until I was actually living here."
