I'm 14 and have had one strange experience when visiting a friend Avondale, north of Bundaberg, Qld.
My father's friend bought an old cattle farm outside the main urban centre, about 30kms. This place had served as a stopover area for stockman on the cattle route from Bundaberg to Mt. Perry. The place is about 110 years old and has an eerie feel about the place.
When I was up with the family about 11pm they told me to go have a look and the old stock pens in the gully below the homestead. I decided to go. When getting closer I felt a chilling spike go down my body, I ignored it for the cold night and continued. On arrival I saw an old caravan and lots of what looked like cow bones. When turning back, figuring I'd had enough, I saw a man in a slouch hat and baggy pants walking the other way across the creek crossing. He turned and looked around at me and tipped his hat and vanished.
I was so intrigued and ran back to the homestead and told everyone. My father's friend's father said he'd saw the same man a couple of weeks back when clearing the gully. He said he did the tipping of the hat as well. I know it was long but very interesting for me as it was my first time. Thanks for reading.
