About a month ago we were lucky enough to be asked if Mike Whitney from the Sydney Weekender could come out and do a segment on the show about our tours at the Casula Powerhouse. We said no... hahahahaha - just kidding, we said "Absolutely!". It was all in good fun and lots of laughs were had. We now know the meaning of the words "TV Tight"... Massive big thanks to our wonderful team for being the 'crowd', to my mum and dad for coming along and starring in the show, and to my partner John for his support and for shoving team members in front of the screen from time to time. And the biggest thank you of all must go to the wonderful Casula Powerhouse itself, and it's beautiful staff who are always so brilliant and accomodating to us. A special mention to Keirsten, Shanae, Julie and Jax. xxx
A link to the video is above, and some screen caps below. Enjoy!
We held a ghost tour, as well as a paranormal investigation, at the Casula Powerhouse on June 15th, 2013. During the tour and investigation we had a lot of activity, ranging from hearing footsteps, hearing voices on the ghost box, and seeing flashes of light.
We were on the second floor and could hear footsteps going up and down the stairs for around 2 minutes. When the boys ran up to investigate, there was no one there. After the tour participants had left for the night, I was on level 1 chatting with a fellow paranormal investigator, saying how I kept seeing flashes of light out of the corner of my eye on level 2 and 3. Naturally I was hoping he wouldn’t think I was completely nuts, but to my surprise he said he was seeing the same thing. Seconds later we heard a groan that echoed across the foyer, and that went for around 5 seconds.
After we heard the groan, we headed into the theatre. About 10 minutes later our talented cameraman Darrin came in and asked us to have a look at what he had captured. He had left his digital camera shooting with no one around, and his camera picked up a white flash of light going past the camera. The energy in the Casula powerhouse was incredible this night. Definately looking forward to our next investigation.

This drawing is my interpretation of the spirit of a man who likes to inhabit the theatre of Casula Powerhouse (I have nicknamed him “Crispy”).
He has shown himself to a couple of people, some of them being our Crew. He has used me/spoken through me on a few occasions, to communicate his disdain for people being in ‘his area’.
This is how he shows himself to me. I see him as a burns victim, but he also looks to be dressed in a hooded robe.
I get the impression that he is more connected with the land than the building itself. There have been times when a voice has been heard, screaming “GET OUT”. There has also been an incident with the Ghosts of Oz radio station team, when one member was lifted up and thrown down the stairs, on top of another member.
This ‘spirit’ is the strongest energy in the theatre, sometimes suppressing all others.

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”
The way we work is, we have a super top secret page (on Facebook) where the whole of the APPI crew brain dump their ideas and their suggestions. The wonderful Sascha, our Case Manager Extraordinaire, came up with the idea that each of us can write 'articles' as such, on past tours and investigations we have done, to share with the public. These will contain personal experiences, and will be told from that particular investigators point of view. A blog.
Nic and I loved the idea, and as there was a Blog function in our website, here we are! So stay tuned for future blogs from all of our crew (or those who want to write them that is - Darrin has decided his blog will purely contain pictures - and we're cool with that).
