A 2017 Cemetery Tour Gallery

It has been a big, big year for the Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery. I'm reluctant to say the biggest ever, because back during 2005-10 the group was made up of just three women who tidied, photographed and recorded every single grave in the cemetery, and then successfully lobbied to get removed headstones returned, all of which amounts to one of the Labours of Hercules.

The last few years have been very quiet on the cemetery front, but back in May we incorporated the group and commenced a new range of night tours, once a month. They got bigger and bigger, and we ended up with six in six weeks, all sold out.

Mixed in with all this were a few other events, including our 'Midwinter Family Day' in June, 'Tombstone Folk' in September, and 'Graveyard Explorer' in October.

Here are a few images from this year. So many good memories for us. Thanks to everybody who visited the cemetery with us this past year - we hope to see you again in 2018!
