Lyndoch Hotel Ghost

The Lyndoch Hotel is renowned in circle of interest for the resident ghost that on occasion makes himself felt present.

The ghost is known as the “projectionist”  who is Mr. J.A. Morcom, a managed of the Lyndoch cinema for some years in the 1950s.

Extract from a paranormal investigator’s journal – author unknown.

I called to see Mitzie, who is the co-owner of a beautiful traditional building, now modernised to cater for the discerning public.   The hotel has been made larger, and a private bar outfitted at the rear of the large public bar.  Here customers can relax to enjoy Barossa hospitality with wholesome food at moderate prices.

Keen to find out the real story of the projectionist; I said to Mitzie, “I believe you have a ghost here?”  I naturally smiled to ease her mind, just in case she proved uncooperative, but the lady nodded, and then pointed to the back of the private bar…
