Haunts of Brisbane presents: Tragic Tales of Toowong Cemetery

Next tour available for bookings

Thursday 1 September 2022

7.30 – 9.45 pm

The Tragic Tales of Toowong Cemetery tour is a special experience because you will explore a beautiful heritage-listed cemetery under the stars and trees, and discover some Real History. The ‘Haunts of Brisbane‘ creator Liam Baker will tell you some of the ghost stories, cemetery folklore and the horrible history surrounding this very special place. Hear amazing true stories of the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement, Brisbane’s lost graveyard, horrific hangings, bloody murders, and – in among this horrible history – be prepared for some spine-tingling tales of the ghosts that are said to reside within Toowong Cemetery.

This is a great way to safely see the cemetery at night. Liam will be assisted on this tour by award-winning cemetery historians Tracey Olivieri and Chris Dawson, and they will all be more than happy to chat with you and answer your questions during the tour.
