  1. The Waverley Cemetery in Vaucluse. Heaps of famous people were burried there too,, like the Packer family, Henry Lawson, Jules Archibald, etc.

  2. This isn’t located near the city but there’s an old cemetery at Wisemans Ferry. It’s on Singleton Rd right on the Hawkesbury river. it’s not jam packed with tombstones but I think it has really old graves from early settlers?
