Tregole National Park

Tregole is a national park in South West Queensland, Australia, 603 km west of Brisbane. Until the gazetting of the park in 1975, the area was a grazing property; the park is located where the brigalow and mulga biospheres meet and has a representative sample of semi-arid ecosystems. The park contains pure stands of the vulnerable Ooline tree; the Ooline stand in Tregole is unusual as the climate is dry. The park has no camping facilities. A day-use area is 10 kilometres south of Morven on the Morven-Bollon Road. There is a short walk in the day-use area.

Ghost Stations

Ghost Stations is a series of books by the British military historian Bruce Barrymore Halpenny, containing ostensibly true ghost and mystery stories connected to the RAF, airfields and other military or war connected stories. Bruce Halpenny had been writing ghost stories in the 1960s and encountering ghost stories in his exhaustive research into airfield histories, when he decided they should form the subject of a special book, so started to add to and research his “ghost-mystery” files about abandoned airfields that "murmur and whisper with ghosts". Halpenny had by 1984 become acknowledged as a respected British military historian, expert in airfield histories, expert in "RAF ghosts" surrounding airfields; the author has since the 1960s been presenting evidence of paranormal activity on airfields, as well as campaigning for not just the Government to do their part and preserve a 1939–45 War airfield, in its original condition to let future generations see, but for the history of each to be recorded and the men and sacrifice never forgotten.

Ghost Stations was launched at RAF Wittering on Thursday 16 October 1986. The book took 18 months to compile and drew upon the author's knowledge and experience working in airfields and documenting their history. Ghost Stations proved a best seller and was followed by a second book, Aaargh!, published with over 30 "ghostly and mysterious" tales, one of, "The eerie mystery of Lightning 894". Aaargh!, was to become Ghost Stations 2 as six more books followed over the years. GHOST STATIONS became a trademark in the late 1980s and in 2008 the new Ghost Stations series, based on the original series, was brought out. In the new series the stories had been shuffled around and merged, thus a story, being investigated by Bruce Halpenny, in several books in the old series, were merged into one story in one book in the new series. Regional books were created in the new series, with Ghost Stations Lincolnshire for some Lincolnshire bookshops, one of their best sellers; the author's son, commercial artist, book editor and writer, Baron Barrymore Halpenny had a hand in the book cover design from the original series to the new series.

The author expresses his beliefs in the supernatural: It is difficult for people to believe in ghosts and this is understandable for people tend to accept only what they can see and hear with their normal senses. Strange paranormal events take place, which seem to verge on fantasy, these events happen when we least expect them, it is not the bewitching hour of midnight, which animates ghosts. Ghosts and other phantoms can show up at any day or night, taking many forms; the original eight Ghost Stations books were: Ghost Stations Aaargh! – Later became Ghost Stations 2 Ghost Stations 3 Ghost Stations 4 Ghost Stations 5 Ghost Stations 6 Ghost Stations 7 Ghost Stations 8 The new Ghost Stations books that are published by L'Aquila Publishing Ghost Stations 1 Ghost Stations 2 Ghost Stations 3 Ghost Stations 4 Ghost Stations 5 Ghost Stations Mysteries Ghost Stations Lincolnshire Ghost Stations Yorkshire Ghost Stations Germany Ghost Stations The Story Official Website for the Ghost Stations books
