Experience a 'Real History' tour. If you've already done our 'Women of South Brisbane Cemetery' tour, you will enjoy this all-new event in which we tell the stories of women interred in the other half of the cemetery (the southern extension, opened in 1904).

During this tour you will walk through this beautiful and historical cemetery and visit the graves to hear the stories of several women who were laid to rest there, and learn how their lives and deaths reflect the history of women in Queensland.

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.

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

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