In Sydney, an easily accessed, paved clifftop walking path connects Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach. Most walkers can't take their eyes off the silvery Pacific Ocean far below, but the blog was delighted to encounter Waverly Cemetery on the top of the cliff near the suburb of Bronte. The cemetery was founded in 1877, and contains an abundance of Victorian and Edwardian monuments, most in excellent condition. These were definitely peak years for obelisks in Australia! The photograph does not convey the scale of the cemetery, which has hosted almost 90,000 interments.
