The Women of South Brisbane Cemetery (night tour)
September 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm$10 – $15
A special experience. Explore a beautiful heritage-listed cemetery under the stars with the people who know it best, and discover some Real History. Your friendly guides value the integrity of historical accuracy, and are more than happy to chat with you and answer your questions.
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 large, historical cemetery and hear the stories of several women who were laid to rest in there. 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).
All our tours are not-for-profit and the money raised goes to our cemetery history and maintenance projects.
