#HauntedBrisbane: The Nundah Cemetery

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our next ‪#‎HauntedBrisbane‬ post is on Nundah Cemetery. Nundah Cemetery is a heritage-listed cemetery located in the inner Brisbane suburb of Nundah.

The Nundah Cemetery was established in the 1840s by a small group of German Lutheran missionaries who had founded Queensland’s first free settlement in 1938, at Kedron Brook. The oldest headstone dates back to March 1855; none of the wooden crosses that marked the earliest graves have survived.

In 1930 the Greater Brisbane City Council became responsible for the general upkeep of the cemetery and in 1982 the Nundah Historic Cemetery Preservation Association was formed to help monitor and look after the grounds. The cemetery is now closed to new burials; unless the person is to be buried in an existing family grave.

We take Ghost Tours at the Nundah Cemetery on Halloween each year. As these tours are limited tickets often sell out. To book a tour visit our website brisbaneghosttours.com.au or call us on 3344 7265.
