Description
Experience a 'Real History' tour. We first ran this tour to mark International Women’s Day in March 2018, and it proved to be so popular that we have added it to our roster of regular tours.

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 in the cemetery, and learn how their lives and deaths (be they tragic or inspirational) reflect the history of women in Queensland. Everything you hear will be factual and sourced from historical records.

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.
