 Cemetery

Project Type: Landscape upgrade

Client: Port Macquarie-Hastings Council
 

Location: Gordon St, Port Macquarie
 

The Port Macquarie Historic Cemetery, which is also known as the second burying ground, is a State listed heritage item consecrated in 1824 and deconsecrated in 1886

It is important in the course and pattern of the cultural history of New South Wales because of its historical associations and significant documentary and physical evidence of the evolution of the place, being the burial place of at least 1400 persons, whose lives contributed to and enriched the history and development of a significant area of New South Wales.

The client's proposal, which was prepared by Rupert G.H. Milne Home Landscape Consulting, was to upgrade the Gordon Street frontage of the cemetery so as to improve its visual and physical connectivity to the town centre and its appearance within the streetscape.
