“I skidded across the floor” our reporter reveals what happened when she visited Toowoomba, Australia’s most-haunted town

In a town said to be teeming with ghosts, Woman’s Day had its own encounter with paranormal activity

When Woman’s Day news reporter Amelia Saw stumbled across a Facebook page for the Toowoomba Ghost Chasers, she knew she was onto a good story. Little did she know, visiting the city in southern Queensland would result in her own spooky encounter.
As she and photographer David Hahn spent a couple of days chatting with locals, the pair uncovered several tales of hauntings and apparitions for their incredible feature in the latest issue of Woman’s Day. But it wasn’t until late one night in her motel room that Amelia truly understood what Toowoomba residents have been living with.
Click the video to hear an interview with Amelia who reveals what happened that night in her own words – and whether or not she’s now a believer – plus amazing footage of local ghosts at work.
