Description
Join us for a nocturnal stroll and experience the uniquely serene atmosphere of the South Brisbane Cemetery. You will visit some beautiful spots under the trees and the stars, as your knowledgeable guides chat with you about the history. The Moonlight Tour looks at subjects such as headstone, styles and symbols, floods, early Brisbane cemetery history, religious segregation, ‘paupers’ graves’, the ‘beautification scheme’ of the 1970s, executed prisoners’ graves, and there will be special Q&A and ‘exploring’ sessions.

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.

Duration
