Halloween Ghost Tours

Around Brisbane

Get into the real spirit of Halloween this year with one of these spine-chilling Halloween Tours from Brisbane's master of darkness, Jack Sim, renowned local true crime and ghost tale historian.

Brisbane is haunted by its dark past, from its convict beginnings through two centuries of tragedy, crime and death, all of which has led to many ghost stories, tales and mysteries. And nobody knows or tells them better than Brisbane Ghost Stories, of whom Jack Sim is Managing Director.

From haunted Brisbane walking tours to cemetery and gaol ghost tours, here are seven of the spookiest tours you can take this Halloween:

Toowong Cemetery (The Original) Ghost Tour – Visit Brisbane’s largest cemetery and walk among the graves and tombs in this city of the dead. Hear ghost stories including the Black Widow, The Angel & the Black Prince.

Toowong Cemetery (The Other Side) Ghost Tour – Discover the other side of Toowong Cemetery. Hear the tales of “Spook Hill”, the gravedigger, Chinese ghosts, and visit the grand memorials of Governor Blackall.

South Brisbane Cemetery Ghost Tour – Almost 100,00 souls lie at rest here… forty-two do not – the prisoners hanged at Boggo Road Gaol. Hear stories of hungry ghosts, criminals, vicious killers, floods & bloody murder.

Nundah Cemetery Ghost Tour - Meet at the gates of one of Australia’s most historic and intimate graveyards – Nundah Cemetery. Hear tales the like of death by chocolate, the ghost girl, the premonition, the ghost ship and the professor.

Haunted Brisbane (Walking) Tour – Despite its modern appearance the River City is an old town – haunted by its past. Walk the streets of Queensland’s creepy capital. Hear stories including historic Brisbane Arcade.

Ipswich Cemetery Ghost Tour -  Meet at the gates of one of the most skin-prickling places, the Old Ipswich Cemetery. Be led by lantern light on an intimate 2 hour historic ghost tour with an eerie Tour Guide and hear 13 real ghost stories of real haunted graves and real haunted sites in Ipswich – true tales researched from archives, libraries, former grave diggers & local residents – forgotten graves, business tycoons, statues that move, convicts & bushrangers.

Boggo Road Gaol Ghosts and Gallows Tour – Hear tales of Boggo Road’s gruesome gallows, and ghost stories from warders and inmates dating back to the 1930s.

In a nutshell - A great experience for families, groups, visitors and those who love history & hauntings.
