Launceston Tasmania has a deep and dark convict past. A past with violent and torturous deaths, and deaths caused by heartache and pain. Petty thieves, rapists, murderers and ill-treated servants and slaves used to roam the streets, buildings, and churches of Launceston.

Here's one of our testimonials:
"Hi guys, Here are a couple of pics to add to your collection. Didn't think I caught anything till I downloaded them. One has a ghostly image on top right of house, the other is of the statue and there appears to be a blue cross on top right - this may be from a church but I don't remember seeing one. Also Eileen felt her hair being tugged at the last place - she thought it was me but turned around to find I was not there ... weird."
