Ghost of Point Hicks Lighthouse- Cape Everard

Post by Zic on Sat Apr 26, 2008 9:23 am

[i]'Man disappears off rocks at Cape Everard ' was the headline of the Snowy River Mail on the Wednesday the 9th of April 1947. The assistant keeper at the lighthouse now known as Point Hicks , came to an untimely end in mysterious circumstances setting his crayfish pot at the rocks at the base of the lighthouse. A six day search by police failed to find any trace of Robert Grace Christorfen or his craypot.' [/i]







After being discharged from the Army in September 1945, Christoferson sought sanctuary and seclusion as an assistant lighthouse-keeper at the [url=http://www.lighthouse.net.au/lights/VIC/Point Hicks/Point Hicks.htm]Cape Everard [/url](Point Hicks) Lightstation on the Wilderness Coast in Far East Gippsland . After his mysterious disappearance, numerous residents and visitors at the light station attest that the ghost of Christoferson occupies his former cottage: his hobnail boots are heard around the tower at night and his apparition polishes brass doorknobs and moves tools and other objects about the light station
