9. Ecology of the cemetery

Inner-city green haven

Symonds Street Cemetery and Grafton Gully provide a inner-city green haven, with a surprising diversity of plants and animals. The Gully is a significant urban forest, with a mix of exotic deciduous trees, and old and regenerating native species. Many of the graves are graced with heritage roses, too.

You will find notes about the trees and the roses in this part of the app.
