West Terrace Cemetery, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

Notes: The West Terrace Cemetery is South Australia's oldest cemetery, first appearing on Colonel William Light's 1837 plan of Adelaide. The 27.6 hectare site is located in the south-west corner of the Adelaide central business district, between West Terrace, Anzac Highway, Sir Donald Bradman Drive and the Noarlunga/ Belair Railway Lines. Originally known as the Adelaide Public Cemetery, it is divided into a number of sections for various communities and faiths, including two Catholic areas, as well as Jewish, Afghan, Islamic and Quaker sections. In 1920, the Kendrew Oval and Light Oval sections were opened and are reserved for AIF veterans who have died since the end of the First World War.

In 1902, the first crematorium in the southern hemisphere was build and began operating in 1903. For the next twenty years, this was the only crematorium in Australia. A number of famous and important South Australian's have been buried in the cemetery and since 2002, the site has been administered by the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority, which also controls a number of other cemeteries within the metropolitan area.
