Lonely Planet review

Many Sydneysiders would die for these views…and that’s the only way they’re going to get them. Blanketing the cliff tops between Bronte and Coogee, the white marble gravestones here are dazzling in the sunlight. Eighty-thousand people have been interred here since 1877, including writer Henry Lawson and cricketer Victor Trumper. It’s an engrossing (and strangely uncreepy) place to explore, and maybe spot a whale offshore during winter.
