The My Bloody Valentine cemetery tour is a special experience because you will explore a large, beautiful and heritage-listed cemetery under the stars and the trees with the people who know it best, and discover some Real History. Hear graveside tales of star-crossed lovers, broken hearts, and crimes of passion. All our stories are true and drawn from the historical records.
This is a great way to safely see the cemetery at night. Your friendly guides are award-winning cemeterians Tracey Olivieri and Chris Dawson, who will be more than happy to chat with you and answer your questions during the tour.
