Its an old cemetery and next to Queenstown Lakeview Holiday Park. You’ll pass it if you go to Queenstown Gondola. I walked for a bit in there and seen theres one cemetary dated 1890.

This cemetery dates from the 1800’s. It is full of history and very interesting. We visit cemeteries all over the world and this is a good one.

We had a spare ten minutes to walk around and check out the small cemetery. It is across from the gondola and has some old graves.

We walked through here on our way back after the gondola and were interested to read some of the older headstones, revealing cause of death and interesting info.

1) disturbing lack of check in services. 2) walls seem to be non-functioning or non-existent 3) audio guides would help boost ease of enjoyment 4) tour guide leader claimed to ‘not work here’ 5) outdated content 6) overpriced

Had a walk around here today whilst visiting The Gondola. It’s was a lovely location with a beautiful pink blossom tree. There’s something very peaceful about cemeteries and this was lovely.

Very scenic spot, base of the woody mountain near the base gondola station. I wouldn’t be unhappy if this was my resting place!

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...More

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