Symonds Street Cemetery Reviews & Ratings
Impressive cemetery, what is divided by bridge. Cemetery is divided in different sections and paths. Informative boards available, so you can learn more about history.
Incredibly ancient. Marvellous attraction if you love history
One of New Zealands oldest 19th century inner city cemeteries. Ravaged in the early 1970s by the motorway.
A nice historic cemetery, but there is a lot of trash around the stones and bushes. Tried to clean up some of the garbage I found on the trails, hopefully other visitors will do the same
