A tranquil oasis of lush greenery and wildlife, the space is enclosed by heavily graffitied sandstone walls. It is only a block away from Sydney’s bustling Kings Street and attracts all sorts of characters; painters looking for inspiration, dog-walkers making the most of sunny afternoons, and high school students on their free period. It is a space used by visitors for all sorts of reasons, but for 18,000 Sydneysiders, it is their final resting place. This is Camperdown Cemetery.
