Additional information

This walking tour is approximately 1.6km in length with breaks at each location and is completed in 1 hour. Given the nature of the cemetery ground surfaces, power wheelchair users won’t be able to complete the full tour. A manual wheelchair user or pram user may need to take their time or attend with assistance. Those with young children are encouraged to use a carrier instead of a pram. If you use any other type of mobility aide, such as crutches or a walking frame, you will need a reasonable level of cardiovascular fitness to complete this tour.

Group tours and walking tours can be organised upon request - email friends@nmclm.com.au.
