If you find yourself up near the Skyline with a minute to spare. A pleasant reminder of life through the ages ; it’s not overwhelming - I took my 8 year old after the Kiwi sanctuary experience while others were in the Zipline. The oldest grave I could find was 1882.

I have visited many a cemetery in my time but this has to be one with one of the best views I have ever seen. As always it is fascinating walking around, reading the details on the tombstone and seeing the differences depending on which year a person was buried.

Few well positioned benches if one wanted to sit peacefully and take in the views and just contemplate life.

Regardless of your agenda for visiting please remain respectful of the loved ones who lay there to rest.

This cemetery is right in front of the way to the skyline gondola. The area is very peaceful and tranquil.

Visited this cemetery twice now, both times leaving the Skyline Gondola. A very well maintained area. with wonderful landscaping and gardens surrounds. It always amazes me how young some people have been when they pass on. A beautiful place to take a pause and reflect.
