  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

IT'S the oldest shopping arcade in Australia with a deadly past and at least one resident ghost.

Caretaker Francis Cluney was investigating a flickering light when he fell into an electrical generator and died in the most gruesome way.

The father-of-five's mangled body was found a short time later and many of the arcade's businesses are convinced he still walks among them and watches over them.

Adelaide Arcade is in Brisbane ;)
I've done a "ghost tour" of the place, it's got a certain "presence" at night for sure.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I guess bugs on the camera are ghosts

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

It does  look like its a bug on the lens.  I would have to be there to rule out every natural source before suggesting that its haunted.

It seems funny they employed a bug as a caretaker but then I'm not from Australia :unsure2:
