Why anyone decided to add the cemetery as a tourist attraction baffles me. Yes there are some very old graves and headstones in here, but have some respect for the deceased - it's not a tourist attraction, it's a place for the deceased to rest in peace.

Thank you for your feedback. We open the Cemeteries as an attraction for visitors to offer a unique opportunity to explore Perth’s early years. The headstones tell stories of bravery, tragedy, illness and accident; of success and suffering, in the Swan River Colony. More
