“This may seem a strange place to visit but I strongly recommend a peaceful walk through this heritage site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Ross Bay Cemetery is located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Victoria. Surrounded by elegant old homes and bordered by the windy beaches of Ross Bay, the cemetery is a place of peace and tranquility. Reading the headstones is like taking a historical stroll through Victoria's past. When you have walked the paths you can cross Dallas Drive and enjoy the crashing waves of Ross Bay and Clover Point. One of the best places to fly a kite on most days!!

Interesting setting, but more fun with a guide, or one of the ghost tours.
