Tours



Probably the best cemetery night tours in the Southeast! 

We run history tours on Fridays and other selected nights at South Brisbane and other venues. Why are our tours selling out and earning rave reviews?

1. We know our stuff! Our guides are leading experts in their subject matter, and our material is factually correct. The integrity of our content matters to us. These are the only TRUE HISTORY night tours currently available in Brisbane cemeteries.

2. We talk with you. Our guides take a friendly, conversational approach to the tour, chatting with you and answering your questions.

3. Best prices! Just $15/$10 concession, with family and group discounts also available. Our tours are not-for-profit, and all monies raised go to history and heritage projects, developing the Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery, and covering basic tour costs.

Our tours generally last for 2 to 2½ hours.
