    12. Yallourn True Crime

    Yallourn was a perfect garden city designed with grand ideals of equality. However, the number of strikes and grander homes given to managers and white-collar workers don't exactly scream equality. Does this have an impact on the kinds of crimes or people who were criminalised in Yallourn? Crimes covered include alcohol-related, theft, bigamy and other small-town crimes.  For more information

    11. Yallourn History

    I like to focus on the people because the town creates commonality between the people,building relationships through the need for products, services and industry. The people make the town. Hear about the Doctor, nurse and boilermaker. The welfare workers, fundraisers and backbone of Yallourn. See Yallourn through the eyes of the people.https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/events/event/11-yallourn-history/

    10. Traralgon Ghost stories

    10. Traralgon Ghost stories

    Firstly the reason these stories are important to me is that ghosts were people once.It’s fascinating to learn about how they lived what they did.Their presence gives us a glimpse into the lives of regular people in these towns.You don’t have to believe in ghosts to enjoy the narrative.Not all spectres are fearsome and angry, some want to communicate, after all, they were people.It’s not as though death steals our humanity usually the circumstances of life or choices we make do that.That's a different kind of story that haunts me.

    9. Traralgon True Crime

    Before I get into it, I do feel the need to tell you there are two crimes against children. Section to skip if you want -   at about 39:57 minutes until 00.54.51 minutes.  I avoid any gory or horrific information of any crime while ensuring the idea is conveyed. Let’s investigate what kind of criminals come from a roadside hamlet.  Do Traralgon’s criminals have energy, perseverance and persistence like the townsfolk? In the live stream, the listeners had three contenders for the death penalty case, and today finally, all is revealed.  On Patreon is the continuation of the crimes for Traralgon. www.patreon.com/hauntedhills https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/crime

     In the first-ever podcast, Tegan Dawson, previous tour guide and owner of Haunted Hills Tours, divulges the narrative of the Haunted Hills. It is a place that exists, in Central Gippsland, in the Latrobe City Council between Morwell and Moe. Below the ghost town or now the mine that was Yallourn.
