In the third episode true crime from the Brown Coal Mine, if you listened to our podcast, on Brown Coal Mine – History, you’d have met some heroes and a fiercely independent community.
When Haunted Hills looks at crimes, it is an interesting reflection on the past, the values, timeliness, and sense of justice. Yallourn North had a wide variety of criminals. Many are unknown. Some were more akin to slapstick comedians, and some are serious villains.
Even so, no citizen of the Brown Coal Mine ever received a death sentence.
Rumour has it some of the Kelly gang spent time in the hills around Yallourn North while hiding from the police.
It is never proven, just a legend.
Discover the true crimes of this small town by listening to the podcast.
While patrons are able to play judge and jury we are not re-adjudicating these crimes
most of them occurred too long ago to be appropriate
however, these discussions create an interesting contrast of values

Haunted Hills acknowledges the Brataualung people of the Gunai-Kurnai nation who are the Traditional Custodians of land they operate on. Much of the Country they speak of is Aboriginal land, always was, always is. We respect the Elders, people, culture, past, present and hope for a positive future on all these lands that was never ceded.
