With such a diverse range of notable interments, there is sure to be a tour whatever your interest. We aim to undertake regular guided walking tours of each cemetery on a range of themes. You'll be entertained, informed and want to come back for more! We also cater for private groups wanting something different.
The Friends are happy to tailor and run tours for school groups, rotary groups, or other interested people.

Notes to Tour Participants
Location: Tours of the Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery leave inside the main entrance gates on Charman Road, Cheltenham (opposite the Cheltenham railway station). Tours of the Cheltenham Memorial Park leave inside the main entrance gates on Wangara Road, Cheltenham unless otherwise stated.
Cost: $15.00 for adults ($10.00 for members) and children (under 18 years) are free. Price includes refreshments and a tour guide pamhphlet. Payment can be made on the day.
Duration: Approximately 2 hours (unless indicated) and includes a 20 minute break for refreshments.
It is essential to dress appropriately for the conditions of the day as there is little shelter within both cemeteries. The Pioneer Cemetery is quite steep in places and whilst the tour follows the safest paths, we advise participants to take care if you have difficulty walking.
