Old Surfers Paradise Ghost Tour. Discover the epicentre of excess and indulgence on a ghost tour of old Surfers Paradise. Peel away the glitz, glamour and showgirls of the past to reveal a dark, seedy undercurrent of greed, gluttony and betrayal and the ghosts that still linger in Australia’s favourite playground. Southport General Cemetery: Visit the place everyone is dying to get into, the Southport General Cemetery. Discover why Joab was struck down by lightening, the mysterious "Mr Brown" found dead at the cemetery gates and Australia's very own mermaid. Move along unmarked graves, body snatchers and murderers. The ground is bursting with 5,000 stories waiting to be told. Be warned, it is bad luck to visit a cemetery at night...and the coast's oldest ghost is still on the prowl.
