Stately Toowong Cemetery is one of the oldest in Brisbane. Established in 1875 the sprawling cemetery located at the base of leafy Mt Coot-tha is the resting place for a diverse range of Brisbane's former residents. A stroll through the grounds will take you past the graves of colonists, return services personnel, police, dignitaries, mayors, and artists.
New monumental burials, as well as walls for ashes, are still available at this beautiful, historic cemetery.
Each memorial is expertly handcrafted by highly skilled stonemasons.
Monumental burials - headstones and gravestones
