Event Details

‘A model for others’: Guided walk through the history of St Thomas’, from Cemetery to Rest Park

St Thomas’ Cemetery was the first European burial ground on the north shore. In 1845, Alexander Berry gave two acres of bushland from his vast estate to St Thomas’ Anglican Church so that he might have somewhere to bury his recently deceased wife. Gradually this burial ground became both a historical curiosity, because of its many esteemed interrees, and a cause of concern as it fell into disrepair. The site was given to North Sydney Council in 1967 and reopened as a Rest Park in 1974.

Join Council Historian Dr Ian Hoskins on this guided walk to explore the monuments of some of NSW’s most significant figures, including Alexander Berry, Captain Owen Stanley and artist Conrad Martens.
