Tour description
(Note: This is NOT a theatrical 'ghost tour'.)

Join a cemetery historian, a paranormal historian, and a (sceptical) professional historian for a walk around the cemetery 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 kind of garden-variety 'ghost tour' seen in so many places around the world, with actors in black costumes telling scripted stories. If that's what you want, please look elsewhere!

This tour is suitable for ages 12 years and up.

  • Tracey Olivieri (the leading expert on the South Brisbane Cemetery)
  • Liam Baker (author and director of 'Haunts of Brisbane', with decades of paranormal research experience)
  • Chris Dawson (professional historian, grumpy old sceptic)
