Grave Tales: Scenic Rim & surrounds, Qld

Grave Tales: Scenic Rim & Surrounds, Qld visits the many public and private cemeteries in Queensland's Scenic Rim and tells of the everyday people who - willingly or unwillingly – were participants in events that made local and national headlines. They may have lived in the same suburbs, streets, and even the same houses as exist now, or finished their days in this beautiful area. These stories hint at our history - tales of unsolved murders, love lost, mystery, tragedy, early settlement, health epidemics, scandal and sacrifice. Grave Tales reveals more than the headstone can ever convey by tracing the tumultuous journeys that lead to these final resting places.
