The ‘Women of South Brisbane Cemetery’ Night tour

June 10 @ 7:30 pm

Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery are offering a special experience. Explore a large, beautiful and historical cemetery under the stars with the people who know it best, and discover some Real History.

You will visit select graves to hear the stories of several women who were laid to rest in the cemetery, and learn how their lives and deaths (be they tragic or inspirational) reflect the history of women in Queensland. Everything you hear will be factual and sourced from historical records.
This is a great way to explore the cemetery at night in the company of the people who know it best. Your friendly guides are award-winning cemeterians Tracey Olivieri and Chris Dawson, and they are happy to chat with you and answer your questions during the tour.
All our tours are not-for-profit and the money raised goes to our cemetery history and maintenance projects.
