Moonlight Tours

“Explore this beautiful cemetery at night,with the people who know it best,and discover a history you never knew.”

The Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery, in conjunction with the Boggo Road Gaol Historical Society, present MOONLIGHT TOURS. These guided tours give you rare access to this historic cemetery at night time, and are conducted by leading cemetery historians.

Why choose Moonlight Tours?

  • You can actually talk to us. We are historians, not actors reading from scripts, so you can ask questions during the tour and chat with us. We do our best to provide answers!
  • They are factual. We take pride in making sure our stories are historically accurate and respectful of the heritage values of the cemetery.
  • They are affordable. We are not-for-profit, and monies raised support cemetery heritage projects.
