The Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery (or FOSBC) was formed in 2005 by three local women who were concerned about the neglected state of the cemetery. During the following years they completed an enormous amount of work, cleaning and recording every grave, and lobbying to protect the place. The FOSBC became an incorporated association in May 2017, and the membership now stands at over 50 people.

We believe that the best way to ensure the long-term protection of the cemetery is to get more people caring about it, either by volunteering there, or reading about it, or by attending one of our tours or public talks, or tracking down family graves.

We are becoming more active on our community and are looking for people interested in joining us as we develop our group. Contact us at if you want to be a part of this great community experience.
