Historic Cemeteries

Our historic cemeteries are the final resting place for some of the earliest European settlers who made their home in the Illawarra.

These sites are recognised as having local heritage value, and provide a fascinating insight into some of the key families and individuals who shaped the past of the Wollongong area.

Local cemeteries such as these are also a source of inspiration and fascination for many local historians and groups.

If you'd like to learn more about these sites, you can find images, books and articles about our local cemeteries on the Wollongong City Libraries catalogue, or through the libraries' Local Studies Collection.
