“It's a cemetery, not a tourist attraction”
About
From the establishment of the first cemetery in 1829 to the closure of the seven cemeteries in 1899 almost all of the people who died in Perth, from the wealthy and prominent to the poor or unknown, were buried here.

Thank you for your feedback. We open the Cemeteries as an attraction for visitors to offer a unique opportunity to explore Perth’s early years. The headstones tell stories of bravery, tragedy, illness and accident; of success and suffering, in the Swan River Colony.
