Friday 8 June 2018, 7.15-9.15 pm SOLD OUT

Description
This is the original next-generation 'paranormal tour'... but what does that mean?

On this tour, you walk around the cemetery with the guides (a cemetery historian, a paranormal historian, and a sceptical professional historian) as they discuss the folklore of ghost stories, highlight some examples from the cemetery, place the stories in cultural and historical context, and explore some possible explanations.

The guides value the integrity of historical accuracy, and you can chat with them and ask them questions - they know their stuff.

This is NOT the same old garden-variety 'ghost tour' seen in so many places around the world, with actors in black costumes telling heavily-scripted stories. If that's what you want, please look elsewhere!

This tour is suitable for ages 12 years and up.

Guides

  • Tracey Olivieri (the #1 expert on South Brisbane Cemetery history)
