Lonely Planet review
Around 1.5km west of Church Sq you’ll find this cemetery, the burial place of a number of historical figures including Andries Pretorius, Paul Kruger and Hendrik Verwoerd. Henry H ‘Breaker’ Morant, the Australian Boer War antihero executed by the British for war crimes, is also buried here – look for the low sign pointing to the gravestone from one of the north-south avenues. If you miss the sign, you’ll never find it.
To get here by bus, take the West Park 2 or Danville service from Church Sq.
