The deathly car appeared abandoned in a local field in Byron Shire following All Hallows Eve leaving locals in fear of what the mischievous sprits from the Otherworld had been up to in the night.

As the veil thinned a deathly car appeared in Byron Shire on All Hallows Eve.

All Hallows Eve is the night where the veil between this world and the world of the spirits thins. It is said mischievous spirits come into the world of the living to create trouble and the faeries spend the might trying to right their wrongs.

But it seems they can’t always put everything to rights. Clues of the wild night in store became visible to many in the Byron Shire as they passed a deathly vehicle that began to appear beside the road in one of the valleys.

No one is quite sure what mayhem the mischievous spirits wrought during the night but fear spread amongst locals as they witnessed the remains of the vehicle left in a local field the next morning.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. All Hallows eve also know as Samhain is celebrated at the mid point between the Autumn Equinox and winter solstice….Looks like those mischievous spirits have reeked havoc with the southern hemisphere seasons casting trickery upon our ability to reason. Its a Twisted Trick which rebrands poisonous sugary confectionary as treats in the midpoint between our spring and summer solstice, and treating the true natural order of lifes cycles as a commercial charade
    Spring is fully sprung – lets celebrate Beltane now, and Halloween in May-

    Bring on the snow and rain dears x

  2. I thought All Hallows’ Eve was the day before All Hallows’ – All Saint’s Day. It is that evil has a last effort to prevail before the great day of good.
