Ghost Stories of South Brisbane Cemetery
Next tour available for bookings
Sunday 22 August 2021
7.15 – 9.45 pm
(Note: This is NOT a theatrical ‘ghost tour’.)
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.
Join cemetery historian Tracey Olivieri, paranormal historian Liam Baker, and (sceptical) professional historian Chris Dawson for a walk around the cemetery as they discuss the folklore (and, in some case, the fakelore) of ghost stories, highlighting some examples from the cemetery, placing the stories in cultural and historical context, and exploring some possible explanations. This is the only ‘ghost’ tour with 100% ghost stories!
Single bookings: $15/$10 conc. / Group bookings (four or more people): $10 per person. See below for bookings.
All our tours are not-for-profit and the money raised goes to our cemetery history and maintenance projects.
