Where to meet
Main cemetery gates, Frederick Street. Please try and at least 15 minutes before the specified start time for the tour so we can start on time.

Parking
Parking is available inside the cemetery. Please drive in through the main gates and our staff will assist you from there. Public transport is also available, please check the Translink website for current rail and bus timetable details.

Out of respect for local residents, we request that you do not park on local streets.

Tour walking difficulty
Medium. There are a few inclines but we will walk slowly. Our staff are trained in first aid and will be carrying first aid supplies. Please advise us of any relevant medical conditions beforehand so we can be fully prepared.

Equipment required
For safety and comfort reasons, all tour attendees are required to wear enclosed footwear.
Strictly no horror-themed costumes or fancy dress please. We aim to ensure that the spiritual and heritage values of the cemetery are respected.

Tour customers are requested to bring a medium-brightness torch for the tour. We can provide a small number of torches for a $2 hire fee. These torches are to be returned to staff at the end of the tour.

Recording
We are happy for people to take photographs but no audio or video recordings are allowed during the tour, thanks.

The cemetery can be a dangerous place in wet or windy weather. We reserve the right to cancel tours in the case of dangerous weather conditions. We will try to contact all customers before 6 pm on the day of the tour if a tour has to be cancelled.

Customers booked on cancelled tours can reschedule for another available night. Alternatively, customers are entitled to a refund, minus a $2 admin fee per person.
