Herbert/Otepopo Cemetery
Waitaki, Otago Province, New Zealand

Originally known as Otepopo Cemetery, it is located on Mount Charles, above Herbert township. A very steep climb from the already elevated township, could be within walking distance to the fit however situated at end of Fraserburgh St., which is approximately 1km from the town itself.

Many of the earliest headstones were made of local Oamaru stone which breaks down as it lies in the ground. A cemetery trust was established in 1869 and still operates and is looking to refurbishing many of these earlier stones.
