Search out the graves of department store proprietor, David Jones, early feminist Louisa Lawson and David Scott Mitchell who endowed the Mitchell Library. The Friends of Rookwood Cemetery run guided tours including a General Heritage Walk, Ships and Shipwrecks, Bushrangers and Summer Twilight Tours.
A walk/drive around Rookwood cemetery will leave you in awe. It opens your eyes to what reality really is, what is left when life ceases to exist.

It is a very peaceful place and definitely worth time set aside.
