On 30 June 2007 my family and I stayed at the Stately Homestead of "Monte Cristo" which is located atop a hill in the township of Junee New South Wales (NSW). Our hosts were Reg and Olive Ryan. The Homestead of Monte Cristo is said to be the Most Haunted residence in Australia with over 13 resident ghosts. I must say in the short time I spent at "Monte Cristo" I was not disappointed. I would highly recommend to anyone a stay at "Monte Cristo". The experience was most enjoyable. You may choose to use other adjectives.

On the morning of 01/07/07 around 7:30 am I walked past the doorway of the above attached cottage and in a light hearted manner I looked in the door and said in a friendly voice "Good morning". As I passed the second window as I walked towards the arched door (to the left), a loud distinct human groan came from inside the room behind that window. As a result I then walked back to the door and proceeded into the cottage. As I got to first doorway to the right inside the cottage a loud human voice (the same one) groaned again from inside the room to my right. It was so loud and clear that it stopped me dead in my tracks and I immediately stepped out of the cottage in reverse. I am very clear in what I heard and there is no way that a person could have moved from that left room to the right room in the time it took me to enter the cottage. For 40 years a mentally retarded male lived in that area and for that entire time he was chained to a nearby wall.

On page 47 of the book "The Mothman Prophecies" there is clear discussion that witnesses have seen objects in the process of materialisation and de-materialisation displaying a red glow first marking the emergence of the object then followed by a blue colour before it disappears. This in physics is also known as the Doppler effect.

It was advised on the Ghost Tour that footsteps are often heard on the top verandah walking from the left to the right at the spot of the above light anomaly. It is interesting to note that all Orbs captured in the images of the front of the house were all seen around the left side of the upper verandah. Also the above light anomaly appears to be multicoloured, which would suggest it is displaying different frequency spectrums.
