Overview

Waikumete is one of the largest cemeteries in the Southern Hemisphere and dates from 1886 when Grafton in the central city became too crowded. A great deal of Auckland's history has been laid to rest here, and various areas include a large military cemetery and a recently opened Maori Urupa. Members of the Friends of Waikumete take guided walking tours around the cemetery on the first Sunday of the month, starting at 1.30pm.
