Visited the cemetery after reading previous review and wondering about the giant. Very interesting looking at old graves in this strange setting just inside the capital Victoria. Mosquitoes abound so wear protection. Pete & Eileen

The cemetery is in ruins, needs to be taken care off. There is no information available to help visitors. There is a giant buried there, but the lack of information makes it nearly impossible to know where he was buried. It holds a lot of history but needs to be maintained in order to enjoy it fully.
