St Kilda Cemetery


The inner eastern cemeteries of Boroondara, St Kilda and Brighton are outstanding examples of the Victorian Garden Cemeteries, with picturesque curving paths, park-like setting, rest houses and loges. The cemeteries contain significant heritage structures recognised by Heritage Victorian and the National Trust of Australia (Victoria).

What's On

Explore the rich history of St Kilda Cemetery. Friends of St Kilda Cemetery will conduct guided tours of this unique site and share stories about people who have contributed to our built environment and the unique role cemeteries have played within cities. 

Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) will also be opening their Melbourne General Cemetery and Brighton General Cemetery sites as part of Open House Melbourne.

This tour is part of the Deceased of the Built Environment series occurring across the Open House Melbourne July Weekend at Brighton General Cemetery, St Kilda Cemetery and Boroondara General Cemetery (Kew). Bookings are required for individual sessions.
