South Brisbane Cemetery Ghost Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.
