It was my first tour of Bt Brown, led by Darren and Catherine. It was a very interesting tour as they both took turns to regale us with true life stories of the people who laid there. Though you have to be well prepared for the mozzies by covering up or by insect repellent, I cannot wait to join the... More

This could've been hard to find but I snuck through a forest and stumbled upon the graves and then I found a road with more gravestones next to it. They are building a highway straight through the cemetery and hopefully not everything is removed. It's a huge area by the way.

We went for an introductory guided tour today. It was a marvellous experience. Our guide Darren is a fantastic speaker and knows how to engage audience. It was highly educational and a trip back in history and culture. I would highly recommend it and look forward to going there again.

It's sad that such a remarkable plac going to die soon as there are construction undergoing. Good for a walk or jogging in day time. Night is for... More

I love this cemetery. It's unique for me and something you can just drive through. It's easy to do so I'm glad I drove through. It would be spooky to do at night and I don't know if it's even open. But it's a secluded place and you'll want to either drive or take a cab through it (if a... More

I was quite surprised to see so many people in Bukit Brown cemetery today (on my last visit I saw hardly anyone). But apparently it's tomb sweeping season, and as such the cemetery was packed. Still very interesting but I think I prefer the solitude when there aren't many other visitors.
