11. Te Henui Cemetery

Te Henui Cemetery
173 Lemon Street, New Plymouth

New Plymouth’s oldest public cemetery has a park-like setting praised by those visiting lost loved ones. It even gets rave reviews on Tripadvisor: “Quite possible that this cemetery is the best inner city ‘garden’ for people looking for a quick fix of peace and tranquillity in their day.” Lovingly tended by NPDC horticulture staff and a group of active volunteer gardeners, this award-winning cemetery first opened in 1861. While considered a heritage cemetery, steeped in local history, there are still about 35 burials here every year. Enjoy the serenity.

Admission free, open daily
