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.

  • Truly historical

  • 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
