The oldest cemetery in town looks abandoned and fallen into serious decay. It served as a burial ground for Christians (mainly of Anglican denomination) for almost a hundred years. It was closed for new internments in 1898.

A sad experience to walk around at a place that is neglected.

It is sad to see this beautiful old cemetery in such a neglected state. Many of the headstones have been knocked over and vandalized. Sad.

Lovely to meander around but really not safe on your own. Some great headstones and some moments for reflection. Graves going back to 1876.

This is a really interesting cemetery . The tombstones are very unusual and its nice to see all the people resting here. Unfortunately I would not suggest going here on your own as there are many petty thieves lurking around

Although maintenance is regular, services tend to be too far apart. So the grass grows quite long. The area is very beautiful. Some of the tombstones are very old, and as such have deteriorated.

The cemetery was an interesting place to visit. It was very dirty and neglected. Many of the graves have been vandalized. We spotted some very old graves but the most interesting was of Victoria Cross winner Sgt James Craig. Don’t go alone as there are homeless people sleeping in the cemetery.

I have a thing for exploring historic cemeteries and St Mary's is probably one of the best historic grave yards in the city. Graves date back to the 1820 Settlers and there are a couple of interesting graves and stories to discover.
