  • White Hills Cemetery Gates
Stop : White Hills Cemetery
White Hills Cemetery, White Hills VIC 3550

Officially opened in 1854, The White Hills Cemetery became a necessity after the enormous population boom after gold was discovered in the area. It is a particularly significant graveyard as it was designated by Bendigo's Chinese population as a remembrance park to bury their dead. The initial burials took place without registration, therefore the first person buried at the White Hills Remembrance Park is not known. The earliest recognised grave at present is that of Gustave Alphonse Eugere Vazie who died in November 1853, aged 19 months. ..
