ROOM 11: Is this the Gympie region's most haunted building?

 

THERE are "haunted house" stories told all over Gympie and surrounds, but reported apparitions at Joe's Grand Hotel in Goomeri might just take the "spooky" crown.

Much has changed in Goomeri since the old hotel was rebuilt in about 1942, but staff members and locals agree that remnants of the past may remain within the walls.

Emma Lucas has managed the hotel for five years and regularly feels the "heebie-jeebies" when she works the closing shift, but says one particular experience "gives me goosebumps every time"...
