Come along to the Open Day at Rookwood Necropolis.

See displays of grave digging and stonemasonry, a parade of vintage and modern funerary vehicles, tour the crematoriums, the rose gardens and the oldest areas of the cemetery.

Listen to our tour guides as they tell you not only the history of the cemetery, but stories of the lives of the people that made Sydney what it is today.

Some stories are sad, some are amusing but they are all interesting.

Perhaps research your family history at one of the offices.

Tour the churches and chapels.                                    

There will face painting for the kids, white elephant stalls, Devonshire Teas, sausage sizzles and many other things to fascinate and entertain you.
