Friday 23 March 2018, 7.30-9.30 pm SOLD OUT

This is a family-friendly tour in which your guides will chat about the history and stories of this heritage-listed cemetery with you, and answer your questions. We look at early Brisbane cemetery history, burial practices, and the evolution of South Brisbane Cemetery, among other things.

This is a great way to comfortably explore the cemetery at night with people who know what they are talking about.

While the content of this tour is suitable for children aged 8 years and over, we do ask guardians to consider that this can be a late night event and a challenge for young children.

Historians Tracey Olivieri and Chris Dawson
