About me

Introduction The Friends of Boroondara (Kew) Cemetery was formed in 2006 to raise awareness of this beautiful cemetery and share with those interested in history, the rich heritage contained here. In the past 10 years FOBKC has conducted many and varied walks for the general public and community groups. We have published two books which have been well received and copies of “Leaving Their Mark” have been presented to 24 schools, public libraries and historical societies. The restoration of the heritage rotunda was a major project completed in 2013 but there are many significant monuments in the cemetery awaiting restoration. FOBKC appreciates the support provided by community grants and private donations in preserving this amazing cemetery. Please see our “Tours” page if you are interested in organizing a group walk or attending a general walk. We are flexible in time, day and topic.
