‘Myself and Holly attended the folklore and mythology tour last night at South Brisbane Cemetery. It was well paced, engaging and fascinating! Chris and Tracey presented us with not only folklore, mythology and superstitions but dived into some lighthearted ghost stories and historically significant people buried at the cemetery as well as the history of cultures of people buried. They shared some specially made treats with us that Tracey had prepared which gave a sensory dive into the history of one certain part of the cemetery and, they were absolutely delicious! Not only is it a beautiful old cemetery with many interesting stories and some beautifully carved headstones but you can tell that Chris and Tracey have a passion for their work. We will definitely be returning as it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you for a well planned and interesting tour, we look forward to attending more!’ – Amy Russell (March 2022)
