ONE of the most haunted locations in the northern beaches features in a new documentary now available on free-to-air television.

Season one of The Space Between goes behind the scenes of the ghost stories and hauntings at the former quarantine station at North Head.

The site operated as a quarantine station for new arrivals into Australia from 1828-1984, thousands of people were sent there and 581 of them died and were buried in the grounds. The site is reported to be one of the most haunted locations in Sydney.

Dee Why filmmaker Bianca Biasi was spurred on by a paranormal experience as a child and told the Northern Beaches Review the documentary is more than just spooky ghost stories.

"It's not a traditional paranormal documentary, we go very much into the science, quantum physics, M-theory and we look at the spiritual world very much from an energetic point of view," she said.

"It's not about ghosts, it's looking at energy. The reality is we're all connected and we're all energy."

During the four-part series she speaks with the Q Station's tour guides and records first-hand accounts from witnesses of ghostly encounters. Ms Biasi also calls in professional ghost hunters to explore the areas of reported activity, with technology able to record infrared images and random sounds to uncover the imprints that remain.

The documentary team also identify 11 key spirits currently haunting the site and they launch the largest full-scale investigation ever completed there.

Ms Biasi said some people are more sensitive than others when it comes to ghostly or spooky encounters, and many of those who do have things in common in their background.

"A lot of them have had trauma, particularly in childhood," she said.

Ms Biasi said the reaction to season one of The Space Between has been fantastic and her documentary crew are currently wrapping up filming season two which looks at hauntings and ghostly encounters along the Wakehurst Parkway.

"We've also just been green-lit for season three," she said.
