Event description

Andy Bay is the largest and most recent of Dunedin's three main cemeteries.  

One of the gravestones it contains should literally not be there - it was installed without a permit.  

There are many soldiers buried and commemorated there; one died on New Zealand's worst and most fatal day of combat.  

We also find Dunedin's famous hermit of Flagstaff Hill, the first New Zealand death of World War 2, a mass grave (not reported in newspapers of the day) of victims to the Spanish Flu pandemic during 1918 and much more.

  • Meet in the carpark of the Anderson's Bay cemetery in the corner closest to the main entrance.  You'll see Gregor and his hat, he can't be missed!
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for the weather.  The cemetery has little shade and is quite exposed so on a hot day, wear sun protection and bring water.
  • You're welcome to take photos and videos during the tour and share to social media.
  • 90 minutes long 
  • Tickets are self refundable up to one day before the event.  Booking fee not refunded.  If you can't attend because you're unwell after refunds have closed, email darkestdunedin@gmail.com for a credit.
