Tiptoe Through the Tombstones
Meet at the Seddon Memorial near Anderson Park to enjoy Wellington’s Spring Festival. Take a guided tour of New Zealand’s oldest cemetery, offering a terrific opportunity to explore Wellington’s early history and reveal many colourful stories of pioneers, politicians, and pathos – including rogues and strong women – along the way. Guides will explain some of the symbols used on tombstones in Victorian times. Don’t miss this chance to encounter a fascinating chapter of our past while the Spring bulbs are blooming.
The Friends of Bolton Street Cemetery are an enthusiastic group of volunteers, some living in the neighbourhood and some are descendants of people buried in the Cemetery.
