Sketching at South Brisbane Cemetery.

South Brisbane Cemetery at Dutton Park, is one of Brisbane's oldest.  It is a heritage-listed cemetery located on Annerley Road, Dutton Park, Queensland, Australia, adjacent to the Brisbane River. It is often (incorrectly) called Dutton Park Cemetery. The cemetery was established in 1866 and remained in active use until the 1960s, after which its use has been limited by lack of space for new graves. By the early 1960s, the cemetery was effectively full and the cemetery was closed. However, as with most closed cemeteries, additional burials and interment of ashes in existing family graves continued to occur. Some additional plots were released in the cemetery in the 1990s. The first person buried in the cemetery was Jane Hockings in July 1870.
