Wandering around a cemetery and reading the head stones can be a fascinating way to spend an afternoon. The Gore Hill Memorial Cemetery was established in 1877 and is no exception. It is one of the oldest and largest general cemeteries remaining in the Sydney Metropolitan Area. Many of the pioneers of Sydney's North Shore are buried in the cemetery and there is a monument to Mary McKillop who was buried there from 1909 to 1914. Occasional tours are run, please visit the Willoughby City Council website for further information.
