The burial place of 120,000 souls

On Friday the 13th, Ghost Tours Pty Ltd invites you to discover Toowong Cemetery, a true necropolis - literally a city of the dead.

One of the most beautiful haunted sites in Brisbane, Toowong Cemetery is now the largest cemetery in Queensland, covering almost 250 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. 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 deadů

This intimate 2-hour historic ghost tour will be presented by an eerie Tour Guide. Come and hear 13 real ghost stories of haunted graves of dead governors, murderers, black widows and buried boxers - all true tales researched from archives, libraries, former gravediggers and local people.

Bookings are essential and tickets are available for teenagers and adults starting from $30 per person. To secure your ticket, please click here.
