This is a list of reportedly haunted locations throughout the world, that are said to be haunted by ghosts or other supernatural beings, including demons. Reports of haunted locations are part of ghostlore, which is a form of folklore.

Argentina[edit]

  • Cinco Saltos in Río Negro has been reported to have a number of ghosts, most of them reportedly the result of witchcraft.[1] In 2009, an intact corpse of an 8- to 12-year-old girl who had died in the 1930s was found in a cemetery ossuary.[2]

Australia[edit]

  • The Buratimos is the wreck of a former U.S. Navy ship from World War II, that occurred off the coast of Western Australia during 1964.[3]

  • Brisbane City Hall in Brisbane, Australia has several stories of deaths spanning the eras before and after its construction. During construction, workmen were said to have died while laying the foundations, which were on top of a former swamp. It is also said that the area was once a significant Aboriginal site – either a meeting place or campground. One story relates the death of a maintenance man, or lift attendant, who either fell to his death down the lift well or was crushed by the lift – this story likely results from a suicide from the clock tower that occurred during 1935.[6] Another story claims an American soldier was stabbed to death during World War II during a fight. Staff have reported the sounds of an argument from the Red Cross Tea Room, and there are many reports of sounds and unusual activity in the areas surrounding these deaths. A third story claims the apparition of a woman is regularly seen traversing the main stairs in the lobby, and to look out over the foyer – a story which likely results from another suicide from City Hall's Clock Tower during 1937, although recent photos of the stairwell exhibit a possible apparition.[7]
BuzzSaw roller coaster in Dreamworld.

For years the theater kept a seat vacant in the dress circle for Federici (only ceasing the practice on economic grounds), and his appearance in the dress circle during rehearsals for a new show is considered a good omen.[12]

Bangladesh[edit]

Another well-known haunting myth of Lalbagh Fort is the ghost of a man on his horse, who gets in and out of the fort at night. They say this apparition actually goes for his prayers.

When they rush to see what is happening inside the prayer room, they find it completely empty. In other rumours, there is a hidden passageway to Agra (presently in India) from this fort. Local legends say, whoever found this passageway and entered it, has never returned. However, the doorways that claimed to have connected to Agra had been sealed long ago by the British rulers after a mystical occurrence happened to an investigation team. The team was searching for the end of the hidden passageway with their dogs chained by the team members.
