This is a tour that you won’t soon forget.
There are no tricks and halloween stunts. There are no extras covered in sheets leaping from the dark streets to give cheap thrills on these tours. Every Ghost Tour is undertaken with an enigmatic Tour Guide who shares the haunted legacy of the site. The presence of these creepy characters is Ghost Tours only concession to theatrics. But whether you believe the stories or not, you are bound to get goosebumps as you listen to the guides.
There are so many ghost tours to choose from. If you happen to be in Toowong, why not visit Toowong Cemetery. Toowong Cemetery is a true necropolis - literally a city of the dead.
Tens of thousands of gravestones, tombs & crypts are spread over the hills and steep slopes. There are many parts you would not dare visit alone. Generations of local people have been compelled to explore it; ghost stories and tales - real and imagined - abound. It is even more isolated and empty than before. In fact, it is now locked to the public at night to prevent vandalism.
Did you know that for 138 years it has been the Brisbane General Cemetery? Nearly everyone has a relative buried here. One of the most scenic haunted sites in Brisbane, Toowong Cemetery is now the largest cemetery in Queensland, covering almost 250 acres at the base of Mount Coot-tha. Some famous and infamous people have been buried here. This is the burial place of 120,000 souls. Some of them might even be walking about amongst you.
The cemetery is empty save for the dead. Do you dare enter? If you have the guts to try this tour, you must be warned that many have seen and felt the ghosts.
