Our tours of the Napier Hill Cemetery are back this summer by popular demand. Led by Curator of Social History Gail Pope, the tour winds its way through the historic cemetery on Napier Hill, where you will discover tales of tragedy - from falling under a train after a high-spirited picnic to dying from fumes on a burning ship.

See the elaborate tomb of a poisoned wife created by a guilty husband and the simple totara gravestones raised by friends to the departed. Funds raised go towards the purchase of the works for the Hawke's Bay Museums Trust collection and the Napier Hill Cemetery planting project.

Bookings essential - please phone MTG Hawke’s Bay on 06 835 7781 to secure your place on the tour.

(Please bring cash on the day.)
What to bring: Sturdy walking shoes, sun hat and sunscreen and bottled water.

Allow 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the walk.
