Apparently- people are dying to come here. It’s the dead centre of Brisbane. There is a train line being put in shortly- the sleepers are already laid.

We past the cemetery as we toured Brisbane’s sights. Our tour guide proudly mentioned that her grandmother & uncle are buried here as well as many old prominent Brisbane families.

I grow up not fr from this cemetery, I have walked through and driven past it as well. The cemetery is one of Brisbane's oldest and is quite historic. A lot of the older graves are starting to look run down (which is the curse of every cemetery when there is no relatives to look after the graves). A lot of the larger graves were for the prominent people of Brisbane at the time and reflect their socioeconomic status. It is always fascinating walking around a cemetery.

Enjoyable evening with a great view of the city surprisingly! Interesting stories but obviously without the 100's of years of history it was clutching at straws to come up with information to keep everyone entertained for the two hours. However, well worth to do it once and I may now go for a wander around during the day to read the gravestones.

An interesting walk. There are some interesting and historic graves here. Unfortunately some of the information signs are damaged.

Grave inscriptions follow an archaic mode- as if in the 19th century. Social and economic and cultural history at its best. Migration flows, origins, appellations, endearments, materials. The location is majestic and compares with the suburban residential area and the Cootha across. What impressed us was that some graves were steeply planted in a way that access appears cumbersome. The cemetery is not fenced and occupies an area of 44 acres and constitutes an area of perambulatory interest. Night 'ghost tours' offered at weekends.

The Toowong cemetery is certainly an “odd place “” one would visit for a walk around!
However if you want tp learn about past governors , Brisbane deceased families, military personnel who have passed on , or even other deceased nationalities , then this is your place.
There is even a museum/ office to help you in your search.
Interesting, large old time “ plots and crypts “ set the scene. Tall almost mausoleum like edifices are quite common.
Respectful war graves are well looked after.
Sad family epitaphs tell sorrowful stories of young children.
Toowong Cemetery is a large area , beautiful old trees 🌳 dominate the land.
The higher up plots seem to mark the more important people in the land at that time and have amazing views of development of Brisbane.

I love graveyards, I love reading the inscriptions on the stones and wondering what the people were like and imagining people stood around the grave all those years ago as the person was lowered into the ground.

Toowong cemetery is huge. It goes on forever. At the entrance, there are a perfectly maintained public convenience from 1924 as well as a museum which was closed when I visited.

The cemetery goes on forever and it would be impossible to see the whole place in just a few hours. Having seen it I would suggest going on a tour to get some sort of idea of the history.

Fascinating place which just draws you in and will make you want to visit again,

No disrespect to the dearly departed that are buried there and their families, but what do people see when they take a tour there and at night ?
