Im often asked about the beginnings of Haunted Auckland and how we got together. The team’s roots go way back, creating some very deep and solid foundations. Around 1985, I teamed up with a couple of adventurous mates and, armed with a torch, camera and tape recorder, set out to document and hunt ghosts. In… Continue reading Haunted Auckland – The Roots & Beginnings

Either with… Continue reading Viewpoints: Joshua Carroll – Do you feel science and the paranormal will ever walk alongside each other?
Some investigations end up being non-events. Sometimes we pack up and leave a location having experienced nothing: photographing nothing out of the ordinary, recording nothing of any paranormal worth on our recorders, hearing, seeing and feeling absolutely nothing. Nothing. Yet the stories we have been hearing about the location, leading up to the event itself… Continue reading My Paranormal Reality
Note This is just some of my own thoughts and doesn’t represent the opinions of Haunted Auckland. I’m not a physicist or a mathematician, so someone who is may tell me I’m talking a load of rubbish. However, the concept of time not being linear interests me and I think worth sharing with others to… Continue reading What if time isn’t linear?
This old overgrown house out in the rural wasteland of South East Auckland sits, overgrown by nature, complete with a small mysterious selection of stripped Audis and Beemas out the back nesting in near shoulder high wild grass.
Almost drove past this old thing. I spotted a glint of reflecting light off a window; pretty much the only thing visible from the road. This derelict old farm house has been completely engulfed by the surrounding folliage. Still, had to stop and say Hello…..Im guessing it doesn’t get many visitors these days.
An old Winery sits vacant and overtaken by nature out in rural Waikato.
Nestled in the West Auckland bush, close to the roadside; but if you were to blink when passing, you might miss it. Its only a flash of sea blue paint splashed across the frontage that might catch your eye. Also known as The Fisher Lodge, the Huia House and the Elam House. Originally owned by a… Continue reading Abandoned Art School – Huia

“What are ghosts?” – This is a question which is often pondered by paranormal investigators. A recent Reddit post started me thinking on my theories on the nature and existence of ghosts and I decided I would take the opportunity to expand on my thoughts here.
During a visit to the States hubby and I were lucky enough to include a few days exploring Tombstone, Arizona. I had always had a fascination for “cowboys and Indians” and grew up watching classic cowboy shows (reruns of course!) such as Gunsmoke, Bonanza and The Lone Ranger, so a visit through the cactus riddled… Continue reading Boot Hill Cemetery – Arizona
A video about Chemtrails posted on Facebook prompted me to research weather modification and whether chemtrails had any impact on the environment.
Ghosts; many have had experiences with them over thousands of years. Ghosts certainly aren’t a new fad. But what are ghosts? Straight up, there are only theories to explain the thousands upon thousands of documented experiences that people around the world have had since the beginning of recorded history. Ghosts and hauntings seem to be… Continue reading Paranormal Theories
This is what we spend half our time trying to determine as paranormal investigators. What happens when we die? Is there an afterlife and what form does it take? What exists beyond our known reality? Why do some souls/spirits (which we tend to refer to as ghosts) seem to linger with us on Earth? Having… Continue reading What are your thoughts on the theory that ghosts are actually inter-dimensional travellers?
TWO SESSIONS : Sat 22 August 2015 & Fri 18 September 2015 I hadn’t set foot in this stunning central Auckland city landmark for a good twenty something years. as a kid I would save my pocket money and mow a few lawns, to raise enough to jump on a bus and go spend a day… Continue reading St James / Regent / Odeon theatres – Auckland
From Comic-Book Advertisements to Cryptobiotic Artemia As a child during the late 1960s and early 1970s, living in England, I enthusiastically supplemented my already-extensive reading of British comics with any American comic-books that I could find, especially ones published by Gold Key or Charlton that featured popular television cartoon characters from that time period.… Continue reading A Short History of Sea-Monkeys
You hear heavy footsteps in the upstairs hallway when you know no one is up there. Doors slam unaccountably. Household items disappear and reappear without cause. You wake to someone whispering in your ear, yet you sleep alone. The bathroom light switches on and off by itself. There’s the unmistakable scent of a strange perfume… Continue reading Is my House Haunted?

Straight up, no one is really able to explain the thousands upon thousands of documented experiences that people around the world have had since the beginning of recorded history. Ghosts and hauntings seem to… Continue reading Paranormal Theories
Every morning, like clockwork, at three in the morning, you’re woken to hear someone call your name. Alone and terrified, you stop to listen. You hear a bang, and then the sound of walking. Alarmed, you get up to see if anyone is in your house. Reluctantly you search the entire house and you realize that nobody… Continue reading You Suspect Your Home is Haunted? Should You Investigate Your Home?
