The Hawkesbury River Monster

In New South Wales lies the Hawkesbury River, home to one of Australia’s strangest cryptids.

I met up with some Hawaiian paranormalist friends riding under the name Hawaiian Hauntings whilst on a trip to the U.S in November 2014. Together we headed out until well after 2am, into the dark, muggy and drizzly night to explore some historical and spiritual landmarks that have had more...

Kiwi Cryptids

Articles and research written exclusively by the Paranormal NZ team and our international researchers covering strange and out-of-place creatures reported to be dwelling in the forests, lakes and seas of New Zealand.

Paranormal NZ is the home of Haunted Auckland, a Paranormal Investigation and Research group based in Auckland, New Zealand.


We are a dedicated group of paranormal enthusiasts, sometimes known as "ghost hunters", some with many years of experience, some with very little, but all having one thing in common; a passion and drive to find out as much as humanly possible about the mysterious and unknown field that is the Paranormal. Many experiences and incidents thought to be paranormal can soon be systematically debunked as natural occurrences.


From ghosts to cryptids, UFOs to urban legends, we cover the full variety of unexplained activity and phenomena. We also have a deep interest in local history, and aim to document historic buildings, cemeteries and other locations which can often be overlooked in this fast-paced era.


It is believed that 90% of alleged paranormal activity can be explained as misidentification, unusual atmospheric or natural phenomenon, tricks of the light and photographic glitches. Some cases defy all scientific explanation and it is the remaining 10% which we are interested in.


Our team incorporates a wide range of skills, qualifications and levels of expertise:


  • · Data Analyst
  • · Early Childhood Specialists
  • · Education Professionals
  • · Event & Music Production and Promoter
  • · Genealogy and Meteorology enthusiasts
  • · Historical Researchers
  • · Information Technology specialists
  • · Interactive Design specialist
  • · Mental Health professional
  • · Photography, Video and Audio production professionals
  • · Physics, Chemistry & Biology graduates
  • · Registered Nurse
  • · Wiccan initiate


Plus a combined total of over 100 years of paranormal field experience!


We offer free assistance and support to people who believe they are experiencing paranormal activity - or activity that they simply can’t explain - in their home or business.


We do not charge anything for our services, as we are in this purely to further our own research. Any opportunities to investigate, experience and hopefully gain more knowledge about this unknown science will be greatly welcomed.
