This cemetery is fascinating for its historicity. Spend a couple of hours just browsing. Reminds us that we are all too mortal.

I'm Brisbane born and bred and, sadly, only visited Toowong Cemetery for the first time this year. It's an amazing spot, full of history, wives' tales and a magic view when you reach the top. Don't be freaked out, it's totally worth a visit.

I love cemetries, they are a historian's delight. I have not only gone through this cemetry myself, but I have taken my partner, then my grown child and my grandchildren. I never tire of it, and there is still more to explore !

Great to be able to drive around natural bushland and sometimes manicured sections. Interesting perspective with hills and dales. A good read about our pioneering families. Great for kids on a rainy day and makes for really interesting photos if you feel like being "creative!"

So much to see here including the grave of a VC winner. Much of Brisbane's early story is evident on a stroll through here.
