Description
‘Haunts of Brisbane’ creator Liam Baker leads a unique night tour that focusses on some of the ghost stories, cemetery folklore and the horrible history surrounding this priceless heritage-listed site.

Hear amazing true stories of the Woogaroo Lunatic Asylum and its ironic link with South Brisbane Cemetery… the scandalous burials which brought about a Central Board of Health investigation… the period of Brisbane’s history when every man, woman and child feared the deadly Bubonic Plague… the hijacked burial that ended up in South Brisbane Cemetery… and, in among this horrible history, be prepared for some spine-tingling tales of the ghosts that are said to reside within South Brisbane Cemetery, alongside a lesson in cemetery superstition and symbolism!

Liam is the author and director of the ‘Haunts of Brisbane‘ history project, and has decades of paranormal research experience. He will be assisted on the tour by Chris Dawson and Tracey Olivieri.
