Millennium Marker, Waikumete Cemetery

Millennium Marker, Waikumete Cemetery

The highest point in the huge grounds of Waikumete Cemetery is occupied by a water reservoir. Nearby is an area affording wide views across to the city of Auckland, an for the benefit of the viewer, a polished stone table indicates points of interest. In the foreground, and mostly hidden from view, various parts of the cemetery – the white building in the centre of the image is the crematorium and chapel; in the middle ground for example the Avondale racecourse, and then the landmarks against the horizon (from left): Rangitoto Island, Mount Eden, Mount Albert, and One Tree Hill.

The inscription reads: Millennium Marker // A Gift to Waitakere City from the Friends of Waikumete // 1st January 2000 // Created by Thompson Memorials and Trethewey Granite and Marble
