  1. I was in a Trivial Pursuit competition tonight and one of the questions was "which is the biggest cemetery in Australia?" Rookwood was of course the correct answer.

    Perfect timing!

    1. I can't remember if I've stated that in one of more posts but thanks for that reminder that Rookwood is the biggest cemetery in Australia.

  2. Dei um passeio por Sidney agora, através de seus olhos. Lindas fotos!

  3. impressive! i haven't seen this kind of vault/mausoleum here. most of the mausoleums here are designed with concrete and grille to let air circulate i guess.

  4. This would be for the rich, of course.

    Have a good Blue Monday, Jim.

  5. Beautiful capture. I played too. Mine are here and here.

  6. That is a beautiful vault. I love to go through cemeteries and see the dates and styles used. Blessings, Debbie
