Description
A special experience. Explore a large, beautiful and historical cemetery under the stars with the people who know it best, and discover some Real History. Your friendly guides are more than happy to chat with you and answer your questions.

During your nocturnal walk through this heritage-listed burial ground you will hear macabre tales of murder, grave robbing, executions, suicide, the Plague, and even couple of ghost stories. All our stories might be true and historically accurate (except maybe the ghosts), but they are stranger than fiction.

This is a great way to explore the cemetery at night. Your knowledgeable award-winning guides are Tracey Olivieri (the #1 South Brisbane Cemetery expert), and Chris Dawson (professional historian).
