It provides an insight to the history of the growth of the City/Australia. It is reasonably tidy but is beginning to deteriorate by not being properly treated. We had and evening of a jazz concert in the church yard, two hours of entertainment well attended 1800/2000hrs.

This old cemetery in front of an Anglican Church has been lifted right out of old England. Tumbled tombstones from the 19th Century, weeds growing up, huge trees. Weird and tranquil.

Hidden off the main drag of King Street, this historic cemetery is well worth a stroll. The paths aren't well kept, so watch your step. But you'll want to take your time reading the headstones anyway. Afterwards, head a little further down Church Street to the beautiful park. It was once part of the cemetery too, but is now a lovely open space perfect for picnics.

This tranquil Church yard of St Stephens, Newtown is the last resting place of the early settlers of the city. The cemetery was founded in 1848 and was for twenty years the main general cemetery for Sydney, with the total number of burials being about 18,000. Many people who were important to the early history of colonial Australia are buried there, including those who perished in the wreck of the Dunbar. St Stephen's Cemetery is associated with several reputed ghosts and a murder. This is a very important historical place for the city.

Evokes many questions and thoughts as you stroll around. Great to see the place being actively used and enjoyed by so many. Also nice to learn that it has strong support fr the local Friends group. Had a laugh at the beehives now sharing the site right next to some of the graves by the house!
