Camperdown Cemetery is a long term, sustainable conservation project for one of Australia’s oldest cemeteries. HAA utilises the traditional skills of specialist stone masons, iron workers, painters and builder to conserve and maintain the aura of this special place. This approach upholds the current best conservation practices recognised by ICOMOS.
Slowness is the key. The cemetery is governed by a small trust who undertake regular but very small projects. The cemetery has an atmosphere of deep love and respect.
