In the daylight hours, Toowong Cemetery is a fascinating exploration with over forty four hectares of graves inscripted with interesting names, dates and stories.
When the moon takes place of the sun, it is believed the ghosts come out to play, and for ghost chasers and enthusiasts alike who dream of capturing one of these lost souls on film, there is the weekly Saturday night Toowong Cemetery Ghost Tour.
The two hour walk amongst the moon lit graves by lantern commences from the huge entry gates, and takes participants on a dark and spine chilling adventure full of tales passed down by local grave diggers, libraries, archives, local people and first hand accounts.
Got goosebumps yet?

Beware. Ghosts have been seen, heard and felt on these tours.
Hi Emma, a great read. I have done one of Jack Sims Crime Tours. If the Ghost tour is anything like it, then it would great. Jack has also produced some fantastic books that will most certainly get you intrigued in any of his tours. This one sounds like a must do. Thanks Emma.
