COOLGARDIE is known for its links to the gold rush era, but medium Anthony Grzelka is heading to the outback town to uncover its ghosts.

The ghost whisperer will be conducting ghost tours on Friday 13th of March and March 14, with tours exploring historic sites such as the Warden's Court, Post Office Building and old gaol yard.

Tours will be limited to 20 people and there will be an option for up to six people to stay on for a seance.

The seasoned medium has been interacting with those on "the other side" for 2 years and said this would be his first time in Coolgardie.

"I'll be experiencing it for the first time with those on the ghost tour," he said.

"When I feel the energy, I encourage people to use their cameras, the spirits, or ghosts, or energy as I often call it, often shows up in a photo, sometimes as a figure, a shadow, or other times like a smear or flash of light or a round self-illuminating orb of light."

Anthony said there were three kinds of ghosts, or energy.

SPOOKTACULAR: The ghost tour will visit a number of spooky sites, including the town's old gaol.

"There's psychic fingerprinting, which is energy left over from an event - for example there may be a ghost that appears at a specific place at a specific time and date."

"There are ghosts that are still caught in the atmosphere and are haunting a location, those are the ones you can interact with fairly easily."

"The third type are the spirits that are connected to someone in the group, those on the other side who guide or come to visit."

Anthony said interacting with spirits was not like what people see in Hollywood movies and ghosts couldn't do much to hurt people.

"They don't wrestle you to the ground and choke you like you see in horror movies," he said.

"In the 20 years I've been doing this professionally, the most I've seen has been a scratch and it's only happened twice, it's very rare."

Australia's Golden Outback chief executive Marcus Falconer said there had been rumours of supernatural activity in the area.

"There are lots of stories of people who report seeing a white lady ghost upstairs in the Warden's Building as well as reports of other activity in some of the heritage buildings - noises, moving objects and the like," he said.
