Abandoned since 1878
The Kangaroo Inn was built in approx 1840, it has a long history and was a Junction Station before the Gold Rush. Mail carriers would also stop here and rest themselves and their horses.
A Navvy was killed in a drunken brawl and the killer never found. The Navvy haunts the ruins of the inn - we got one strange photo - maybe it's him....
Approaching the Kangaroo Inn
We're about to go inside, it's an amazing place
It's almost like a cave inside, so many years of graffiti carved into the stone, even as far back as 1861
And there's more
Fire places are in every room
There is 10 rooms in all - and they're not big, just somewhere for people to lay their heads - literally.
You can see how narrow the room is
It's like a maze inside
Below is a strange photo
Do you see a figure leaning up against a wall? Below I have cropped it and circled it. The place was deserted - but looking at this photo it seems to be a persons shape leaning against a wall
Could it be the murdered Navvy? or maybe another spirit person? Maybe nothing at all.
We looked out the back window and saw...
The Kitchen - separate to the Inn. Inside was much better than the ouside looks
The old oven was still intact. How many loaves of bread were baked in this oven?
The fireplace was so big - I could stand upright comfortably - I'm not that tall but still - this is a big fireplace!
Looking up to the sky from inside the chimney
The origional well still stands outside the kitchen
Looking into the well, which was once filled with water
Side view of the kitchen
We're leaving the old Kangaroo inn... it certainly has an eerie feel to it. Should we investigate this place at night? Email me and let me know, maybe we will.
