Site Seeing Sundays at East Perth Cemeteries
From tuberculosis, brought to the colony from the Old World, to typhoid, a fever that struck Perth at the same time as gold fever, the graves of East Perth Cemeteries are a record of the first 70 years of European migration to what is now Perth, Western Australia.
Come and explore the remnants of the original seven independently owned and managed cemeteries and a small Gothic church that now make up East Perth Cemeteries. The collection of graves and the informal setting reflect their nineteenth-century origins and hold uniquely Western Australian stories.
Enjoy free entry to National Trust properties in WA on Sundays during the festival.
