UL, myth, or historical? The Poinciana Woman

The sun sinks into the ocean below the cliffs at East Point reserve, and the shadows of the Poinciana trees spread like dark talons over the road.

Just as the curlew begins its eerie night song, the scream of a woman tears through the humid air.

Out of the shadows she moves, black hair plastered to her face, white dress lit through the dark, her hands grasping for blood. Men's blood.

It seems nearly everyone who grows up in Darwin learns the legend of the Poinciana Woman, who haunts the flaming poinciana trees at East Point Reserve after dark.

More than any other topic, this ghost story keeps reappearing in the Curious Darwin inbox, begging for a torch to be shone upon it — or through it.

Shouldn't mention Darwin and ghosts in the same sentence.
