The cemetery remembers many of Dunedin's and New Zealand's early settlers and founding residents, such as entrepreneur William Larnach, Charles Speight and Poet, Legislator and Journalist Thomas Bracken.

We invite you to take a look around this site for a unique view of one of Dunedin's and New Zealand's oldest and story filled cemeteries.


The Southern Heritage Trust maintains an Information Gallery for the Northern Cemetery in the Sexton’s Cottage, which is open on a regular basis on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. during the summer season. 


It is also open at other times, depending on the availability of volunteers: if you are planning a visit out of hours, it may be advisable to check first by phoning 03 471 8265.

The regular Sunday openings have now been discontinued for the winter.
