Bolton Street Cemetery, CBD, Wellington City, Wellington, New Zealand

Notes: Bolton Street Memorial Park is home to Wellington’s oldest cemetery, which dates back to 1840. The Park offers a tranquil, historically interesting escape, minutes from the city centre.

There is a heritage rose collection inspired by original graveside plantings. Blooms peak in November.

Many of early Wellington’s notable figures are buried here, including New Zealand company founder Edward Gibbon Wakefield, NZ’s longest serving prime minister Richard John Seddon, shoe merchant Robert Hannah, The Evening Post founder Henry Blundell and senior chief at Pipitea Pa, Te Ropiha Moturoa (of Ngati Mutunga).
