Monte Cristo Homestead, Australia

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the town of Junee in New South Wales, Monte Cristo has long been considered Australia’s most haunted house. You might not believe in the supernatural, but a visit here is sure to test such scepticism. Creepy, unsettling and not a place to enter alone, there’s far more to this historic property than first meets the eye.
Dating back to 1885, several gruesome deaths are said to have occurred here, whilst the ghosts of the former owners, Christopher and Elizabeth Crawley, are believed to haunt the house.
Footsteps on the stairs, whispering voices and the feeling of a hand on the shoulder are reported to have happened here. Do you feel brave enough to cross the threshold? If you’re scared of all things inexplicable and ghostly, it might be wise to keep your distance.
