Description
Experience a Real History tour. Join us for a night-time stroll through the newer half of the cemetery that opened in 1904. Your guides on this all-new tour will chat about the general (and genuine) history of the place and the stories of some of the residents laid to rest within there. No cheap thrills here - we want you to appreciate the peaceful atmosphere of this special place.

This is a great way to explore the cemetery at night in the company of the people who know it best. Your friendly guides are Tracey Olivieri (the #1 South Brisbane Cemetery expert), and Chris Dawson (professional historian), and they will be more than happy to answer your questions.

Our tours are not-for-profit and the money raised goes to cemetery history and maintenance projects.

Duration
2 - 2¼ hours (tour times can vary depending on levels of customer interaction during the tour).

Age level
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.

Walking difficulty
Medium. Please be aware that this tour does involve walking (slowly) up the big hill in the cemetery.

Private tours
We can organise a tour just for your own group of friends. You can select any tour type you want. Minimum cost is $150 for up to 15 people (extra people $10 per head).

All our tours are not-for-profit and run by the Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery (Inc.) in partnership with the Boggo Road Gaol Historical Society (Inc.). Tours are conducted under license from the Brisbane City Council. All profits go towards our cemetery heritage projects and FOSBC community activities.
