Burra All Night Paranormal Investigation
Burra Paranormal Investigation – All Night Ghost Hunting
Burra is a historical township, founded in 1845, after the discovery of copper in the area and where our Burra Paranormal Investigation takes place.
It was this discovery of copper, both here, Moonta and in Kapunda, that saved the new colony in South Australia from bankruptcy.
Several townships were set up in the area populated by largely the Cornish, English and Welsh.
However, housing was short for the growing population of nearly 5,000 people, due to lack of materials so many of the miners and their families lived in dug-outs. These dug-outs stretched for 3kms along the Burra Burra Creek and were known as Creek Street.
Eventually this method of living was abandoned due to the large amount of disease and flooding that occurred.
Instead separate villages were set up including Redruth for the Cornish, Hampton for the English and Aberdeen for the Scots.
Each village had it’s own facilities and shops.
It was in Redruth that the first Gaol outside of Adelaide was built.
It was originally built for lawbreakers, as the transportation of prisoners to Adelaide was getting too expensive.
Eventually though, it was shut down and made into a girl’s reformatory.
Most of these towns still exist and are collectively known as Burra, however the township of Hampton is now only ruins after the last family left in the 1960’s.
These are all the areas that you will be exploring on the Burra paranormal investigation.
