This is the most amazing but small cemeteries i have visited, its very old and historic head stones are worded in very old English wording. It truly is a must see, it wont take long to walk through but it is worth a visit.

We stumbled on this cemetery after coming down from the gondola. Wow, there are a lot of Irish immigrants buried in this cemetery! I'm Irish, so I found it to be very interesting to see what parts of Ireland they came from.

Always interesting to explore a cemetery with so much history to be seen here on tombstones. Beautifully cared for and nestled on the side of Queenstown Hill right near the Gondola and Kiwi Birdlife.

I love visiting graveyards and was delighted to spot this one at the bottom of the gondola. It is in a beautiful setting with fabulous views. Lots of history here and lots of Irish ancestry.
