Melbourne General Cemetery

 Melbourne General Cemetery is one of the most important cemeteries in Australia. The first burial was in 1853 and there have been more than 3000,000 burials. It is almost a walk back through Melbourne's history with some notable interments, so much so that they do run tours of this cemetery.
