Experience Brisbane’s history like never before. With the art of chilling storytelling and fascinating history, the Toowong Cemetery Ghost Tours have been a local favourite activity for almost 20 years.
Toowong Cemetery is a true necropolis – literally a city of the dead.
For 142 years it has been the Brisbane General Cemetery. Nearly everyone has a relative buried here. One of the most beautiful haunted sites in Brisbane, Toowong Cemetery is now the largest cemetery in Queensland, covering over 100 acres at the base of Mount Coot-tha, it is the burial place of 120,000 souls – some famous, some infamous.
Spread over the hills and steep slopes are tens of thousands of gravestones, tombs & crypts. There are many parts you would not go alone. Generations of local people have been drawn to explore it; ghost stories and tales – real and imagined – abound. Now locked to the public at night to prevent vandalism it is even more isolated and empty than before. Empty, save the dead...
Ghost Tours offers two completely different tours on opposite sides of this beautiful cemetery:
TOOWONG CEMETERY ORIGINAL GHOST TOUR (Saturday nights 7.30pm)
TOOWONG CEMETERY OTHER SIDE GHOST TOUR (Friday & Saturday nights 7.30pm)
Meet your ghost tour guide at the gates of Toowong Cemetery.
Once issued with a torch, you shall step inside this vast necropolis. 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. After an eerie evening of ghost stories and possibly some sightings, your tour will finish back at the gates of Toowong Cemetery.
Suitable for ages 10 and over.
