Did you know that this cemetery is one of the earliest cemeteries surviving in the inner city suburbs? It was established in 1838 and it pre-dates its more famous neighbour – Camperdown Cemetery – by 11 years.
There are some grand, finely-carved neo-classical monuments marking large family vaults.
It is a lovely little cemetery to wander around and the recent addition of some small interpretive signage (installed to celebrate the cemetery’s 175th anniversary) is a bonus – you can learn about all the local luminaries.
When I visited a few weeks ago I was serenaded by kookaburras, as well as aeroplanes! This cemetery deserves exploring. If you want a guide, history tours happen once a month.
