Chinese Cemetery, Victoria

(15+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Learn about Chinese burial traditions at Chinese Cemetery, a National Historic Site. A central part of the local Chinese community since 1903, the cemetery overlooks Haring Point's rocky shoreline--a fortuitous location for its harmonious feng shui design. Although there haven't been any burials here since the 1950s, relatives still bring food and paper money, and burn incense at the ceremonial tower. Use our Victoria trip builder to arrange your visit to Chinese Cemetery and other attractions in Victoria.

  • I love it here. Beautiful place to watch the sunset and learn some history. And a place to pay respects while all of this is happening.
  • Beautiful but small park and cemetery. Sometimes there's a lone man playing the bagpipes and it makes my day. Quiet and serene

  • Interesting historic stop.
