  • I've been here two times, when I was a kid on an excursion in primary school. We got to learn about the first fleet people who are buried here and some bush rangers. When the tour ended, I ran back to the entrance and tripped over a foot stone. My bad. The second time was just recently. We found a cabbage and a flower on a grave. Odd experiences both times. The history of the place is interesting. It is well kept. They had half mowed the grass when I visited so some of my photos turned out creepy. All I needed was a bit of fog to complete it.
  • The oldest remaining European burial ground in Australia. The burial site of Henry Dodd, a “First Fleeter” & “Faithful Servant of Governor Phillip” is located towards the rear. He was a butler who had ‘sound farm knowledge.’ Died 28.01.1791.
