Ghost Stories of South Brisbane Cemetery
Next tour available for bookings
Sunday 31 July 2022
7.15 – 9.45 pm
The Ghost Stories cemetery tour is a special experience because you will explore a beautiful heritage-listed cemetery under the stars and the trees with the people who know it best, and discover some Real History. We talk about the folklore (and, in some cases, the fakelore) of ghost stories, highlighting some examples from the cemetery, and place the stories in cultural and historical context. This is the only ‘ghost’ tour with 100% ghost stories!
This is a great way to safely see the cemetery at night. Your friendly guides are cemetery historian Tracey Olivieri, paranormal historian Liam Baker, and (sceptical) professional historian Chris Dawson, and they will be more than happy to chat with you and answer your questions during the tour.
(Note: This is NOT a theatrical ‘ghost tour’.)
