Rose and Crown Hotel

This historic hotel is the oldest licensed pub in Western Australia, and is believed to have its fair share of ghost stories. Ghosts of former publicans and convicts have reportedly been seen and heard in various parts of the hotel, but the most commonly reported apparition is a bullock drive who murdered his wife in the building. Guests and staff claim to have seen this remorseful spirit roaming the hotel late at night.

  1. I have been looking for the hotel I went to as a child which was haunted and I think it was this one. It was a busy weekend lunchtime on a sunny day and my mother had to call in and see someone about music on our way from Perth to Bridgetown. She told me not to go exploring but being a kid I totally wandered around. I stumbled across an empty room and went inside then froze. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t speak and in the burning heat of summer it was bitterly cold. I think I waited about half an hour before my mother and a staff member found me. They looked pale but said nothing. My mother said nothing for the rest of the trip and in spite of disobeying orders, I wasn’t in trouble.
