Adelaide Cemeteries

Cultural and Theme Tours

West Terrace Cemetery has been a South Australian landmark since Colonel William Light laid out the city of Adelaide in 1837. The cemetery is home to around 150,000 souls and our West Terrace Cemetery Night Tours explore the stories of those who rest here. Make your way through the darkness amongst the tombstones as your guide shows the way. Long-dead characters appear out of the gloom heroes and lovers, political greats and cold-blooded killers. Unique sound and light effects enhance a show that is at once surprising, shocking, entertaining and informative. We assure you you’ll never think of West Terrace Cemetery the same way again!

What was a young wife thinking as she searched for an axe with which to kill her husband? What drives the architect of a city to shack up with his maid? And how badly jilted must a man feel to kill his ex-fiancee with a fire poker, then dive into a well with a rope around his neck? All this and much more happened right here in Adelaide more than a century ago. Live the stories in amongst the headstones of West Terrace Cemetery in this enthralling Night Tour.
