Now, that’s a view to die for. Literally. I strikes me as odd that one of the key attraction on the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is a cemetery. But this cemetery, Waverly Cemetery is no ordinary cemetery. Aside from it’s amazing location by the...More

Waverley Cemetery is on the Coastal Walk between Bondi Beach and Coogee Beach. It's absolutely worth slowing your walk down and taking a look at the gorgeous sculptures and headstones everywhere. It's a wonderful place for photos with the ocean as the backdrop for the...More

Part of the Bondi to Coogee Coastal walk, we were not expecting to see such a peaceful and beautiful place. Some structures were dating back to 19th century. I and my wife were stunned with the location and setting of this peaceful place. Must visit...More

I hadn't seen it coming. A coastal walk detours through a grandiose cemetery with huge sculptures of angels and grand mausoleums housing the dead of centuries from all corners of the world. A landslip has meant the coastal path heads inland and uphill through the...More

Why? Because then you do not have to play dodge the tourists. I love strolling around this cemetery, especially during sunset. If you are doing the coastal walk, take some time to admire some of the wonderful stonework on some family tombs.

Waverley Cemetery is one of the oldest in Sydney and easily accessible by foot from Bondi or Coogee. Henry Lawson is buried there, as well as many other important people who contributed to our wonderful country's heritage. The views are stunning, and altho many graves...More
