Cemetery Tours

Meet pioneers, politicians, trailblazing women, rogues and ratbags in a tour of the Historical West Terrace Cemetery. With more than 180 years of history, West Terrace Cemetery represents a diverse and fascinating cross-section of South Australian history.

As part of encouraging respectful public use of our sites, Adelaide Cemeteries offer a number of tour formats. From Self-Guided and Guided Day tours to our award-winning Cemetery Night Tours, history comes alive here.

An intriguing journey of discovery awaits you at West Terrace Cemetery. Follow one of the self-guided interpretive trails and explore South Australia’s rich history through the eyes of the people that helped shape it. Download the digital trail guide onto your mobile device using the QR Code just inside the cemetery entrance.

The trail map and coloured way-finding markers will help you navigate your way through the cemetery. Self-Guided tours can be undertaken 7 days a week within cemetery opening hours. We recommend at least one hour to complete the trail.
