Camperdown Cemetery

For a rest from all the hustle and bustle of King Street, turn down Church Street to find the Camperdown Cemetery. One of only a few remaining historical cemeteries in Sydney, look to find the gravestones of major figures in the colonization and discovery of Australia including Major Edmund Lockyer and Lieut. Colonel Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell. The cemetery includes many monuments including a rare water fountain and a pediment from the old Maritime Services Board. The large trees over the cemetery provide a peaceful shade. After exploring the grounds, walk inside the Gothic St Stephen’s Church beside the cemetery to sit for just a moment and reflect.
