Around Waverley Cemetery. The path used to go along the edge of the cemetery. It was crowded and becoming eroded, so this new cantilevered decked walk has been built. I've shown this stretch and the cemertery before, prior to the new walkway being built: click here.

Rookwood Cemetery in Sydney, Australia (also called Rookwood Necropolis) - is known to be the final resting place for over one million people! Was originally known simply as "The Necropolis" (meaning "City of the Dead"). Locals lobbied and finally had the name changed in 1879. If you are looking for a haunting in the land down under, this is a huge and perfect place to start! Largest cemetery in the Southern Hemisphere.

When one went to visit a grave they would also enjoy the place. Hidden exhibition. Unfortunately this has vanished, as people distanced…
