The Coastal Hospital Cemetery WalkA 15 mins, 500m Return walk | Grade 2/6
The Coastal Hospital Cemetery Walk is an easy walk near a beautiful coastline visiting an early Australian cemetery. The cemetery is located on raised ground with views out to the coast and sea. Used primarily as a cemetery for the old quarantine hospital from the 1880Ã¢Â€Â™s it is home to over 2000 graves (most not visible). The visible grave sites are interesting and provide a fascinating glimpse into life (and death) 100 years ago. Worth a visit if you are in the area or if you have an interest in the local history.
