On my way to Mount Coot-Tha I accidentally ran into this impressive historic cemetery. The state of abandoned graves that partly date back to deaths in the late 19th century is an impressive reminder of momentariness. It may well be possible to spend half an...More

This cemetery is huge set in bushland 5k from the city- I like to just go for a walk and check out the odd headstone- there are organised tours and ghost tours at night - I like the walk .

Beautiful grounds and peaceful place to walk around. Calm in the city with some of the oldest grounds.

Interesting 2 hour walk around an amazing place! Lots of history, presented well. Wear good walking shoes (a few hills/steep grassy bits).. No ghosts to be seen on the night we went😐

We attended a recent guided tour through Toowong Cemetery, conducted by the Friends of the Cemetery group. The tour stopped at the graves of many of Brisbane's historic figures, was well researched and conducted. We found it fascinating, and we highly recommend it
