Karori Cemetery is New Zealand's second largest burial ground, covering 40 hectares.
Wellington's heritage cemetery is now being developed into a heritage park. Many eminent New Zealanders are buried at Karori Cemetery, including people involved in the Shackleton expedition and the Tangiwai disaster.
The Karori Crematorium (1909) was the first in NZ, and the second in the southern hemisphere. The main entrance is off Old Karori Road.
