What a great place thats not maintained anymore. This is the most beautiful little town that needs to pull together to restore its history. Please don't let it go keep the maintenance up so the tourist can return to your beautiful town.

Scenery around this site is spectacular. Importantly is the Critically Endangered grassland just between the cemetry and village. Well maintained with passionate folk eager to take one on a flower walk.

The cemetery sits on a hill above the town. You get a good view over the the forests and dam. The community look after the cemetery. There are benches where one can sit and reflect. Apparently the full moon is best viewed from here.

The Haenertsburg Cemetery is a peaceful retreat with stunning views and is very popular for walking dogs and meeting for sundowners. Definitely good for the soul and well worth a visit. Must be one of the most peaceful and beautiful cemeteries in SA.
