One of Australia’s most haunted sites, the second largest cemetery in Queensland hides many terrible tales.
The iron fence and entrance gates of South Brisbane Cemetery – more commonly known as Dutton Park Cemetery – is passed by thousands of drivers every day, though few know who lies there. This is one of the earliest burial grounds in the state – the first recorded burial was in 1870.
Covering forty-six acres, the cemetery stretches down a steep hill to the Cemetery Reach of the Brisbane River. Hidden among old trees are thousands of gravestones and memorials. Hundreds more are missing – the result of flood, vandalism & time. Though almost 100,000 souls lie at rest here… forty-two do not.
What You'll Get
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.
