A Midwinter's Night Fundraiser


Friday 22 June 2018

We will be presenting two special night tours at the South Brisbane Cemetery on (almost) the longest night of the year!

ALL profits from these tours will be donated to Women's House, a local organisation that works to help women who have experienced violence. We are aiming to raise at least $750 on the night.

Our first tour (7.00 pm - 8.45 pm) will be 'The Women of South Brisbane Cemetery', in which we visit the graves and tell the sometimes tragic, sometimes inspirational stories of several women who were laid to rest in the cemetery, and show how their lives and deaths reflect the wider history of women in Queensland. This tour is suitable for ages 12 years and up.

Our second tour will be 'Gruesome Graveyards' and will run from 9.15 pm - 11 pm. You will hear macabre tales of murder, grave robbing, executions, suicide, the Plague, and even couple of ghost stories. All our stories might be true and historically accurate (except maybe the ghosts), but they are stranger than fiction. This tour is suitable for ages 12 years and up.

Why not make a night of it and take both tours?
