The Coastal Hospital Cemetery Walk is an easy walk, near a beautiful coastline, visiting an early Australian cemetery. The cemetery is located on raised ground, with views out to the coast and sea. Used primarily as a quarantine cemetery from the 1880’s, it is home to over 2000 graves. The gravesites are interesting, however poorly kept with many broken or missing stone crosses. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
