Many Sydneysiders would die for these views…and that’s the only way they’re going to get them. Blanketing the clifftops 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 surprisingly uncreepy) place to explore, and maybe to spot a whale offshore during winter.
