Favorite thing: This tip is for all those people who love browsing around cemeteries.
The Nudgee Catholic cemetery is the only major private cemetery in Brisbane, and the 1st burial here was in 1867.
It really is quite interesting to have a walk and drive around, its very large!
The cemetery is divided into distinct sections. It has an area for the church religious orders such as the Sisters of Mercy and the Christian Brothers and others that are set in defined areas.
Another large section is that set aside for above ground burials which are popular with some European cultures and large family plots used for generations of families.
We drove around the numerous, elaborate, Italian mausoleums. I had to stop and have a look, many were in a nice marble room with photographs and memorabilia of the deceased.
Not only Italians, but there are a lot of Irish descendants are buried in this cemetery.
The cemetery's most famous interee is Vincent Gair, Premier of Queensland from 1952 - 1957.
Amongst the prominent religious burials is Mother Mary Vincent Whitty, founder of the Sisters of Mercy in Brisbane.
Fondest memory: 493 St Vincents Road, Nudgee
