Additional Information

Introduction

The castle was a gift from William kelly Smith to his fiancee, which was built in 1915 and stopped in 1926 due to kelly's sudden death. Legend has it that Australian photographers have photographed a bit woman during this abandoned house, expression that it's Kelly's 6-year-old female offspring, and a few individuals have witnessed the ghosts of men, therefore "Ghost Fort" has become a significant feature here.
