Paranormal Investigation at Rippon Lea Estate (2017)

Investigate a different side to our most loved properties during a paranormal investigation!

In 2016, the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) conducted its first ever paranormal investigation at its Tasma Terrace headquarters, with the help of Paranormal X Files. Due to popular demand, the National Trust and Paranormal X Files are collaborating once again and opening the doors of our properties to members and the general public.

Join us at Rippon Lea Estate for this rare opportunity to experience one of our favourite sites in a non-traditional way.

Each month we will be investigating a different location so stay tuned and don’t miss out!
