Australian Paranormal Phenomenon Investigators (APPI) founder Peta Banks said people can expect two things from their ghost hunt at the Vintage Village inside Fairfield City Museum & Gallery on Friday, October 12.

No.1 is friendly paranormal activity. And No.2?

“Nothing is fake. You can’t switch on the activity,” she said.

“But Fairfield never disappoints... in the 20 times we have come out there we have had a lot of experiences.”

The ghost tour is a unique way to learn about one of our oldest buildings and its history.

Ms Banks, who is the lead investigator, said the General Store is a “hotbed” of activity with a lot of interactions on the ghost box – a piece of paranormal equipment (basically a broken radio) that is continually scanning frequencies.

They also get some shadow figures in the council chambers and hear some “kids giggles” in the school.

“We once had a boy do a ganzfeld experiment and he jumped up because he felt like someone was grabbing his leg,” she said.

“We also had a lady do table tipping which is basically where you ask the table to move to your questions and she thought her grandmother was coming through because the answers were spot on.”

Ms Banks has been investigating the paranormal after attending a ghost tour in 2010 and is passionate about searching for the unknown

The 90-minute event offers an introduction to paranormal investigation using scientific equipment to tune in to any phantom phenomena around the sites. 

After learning the basics of ghost hunting, residents can participate in more advanced APPI events across Sydney.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said the south-west region areas were all colonised around 1810 and have their fair share of “legendary tales and ghostly folklore”.

“Each building in our Vintage Village has a great story to tell about Fairfield City’s past and the people that lived here,” he said.
