Karrakatta Cemetery first opened for burials in 1899. This historic cemetery is the final resting place of many thousands of Western Australians. Monuments and headstones bear many famous names including those of university founders, writers and historians, state premiers and other auspicious individuals.
The cemetery is centrally located just seven kilometres west of Perth city centre, Western Australia and is easily accessible by car or train.
Stately stands of cypress trees – a hallmark of Karrakatta – flank the main driveway off Railway Road and preside over beautiful garden views in the historic heart of the cemetery.
