Get off the well-beaten tourist trail in Brisbane on this cemetery ghost tour. A local guide will walk you through the 19th-century cemetery that covers 46 acres. Thousands of graves are spread throughout the grounds—and many are missing. Be prepared to be spooked by tales of the cemetery’s inhabitants who do not rest in peace.
What to Expect
Meet your ghost tour guide at the beautiful front gates of South Brisbane Cemetery, just across the road from the Fish Kitchen.
Once issued with a torch, you shall step inside the this old cemetery. To add to the experience of the tour, torches are switched off during the stories, plunging you into the atmospheric darkness of the cemetery.
As you walk through the darkened pathways and lawns  your guide will share stories of the ghosts that haunt the cemetery and those who encountered them. Some stories are funny and some are downright chilling - all of them interesting.
Expect a leisurely walk over 2 hours, with frequent stops for photo opportunities and dramatic story telling. Please be aware there are some reasonably steep hills to walk up during the tour. After an eerie evening of ghost stories and possibly some sightings, your tour will finish back at the front gates of South Brisbane Cemetery.
