Thank you to everyone.

As a regular reader of the Burwood Bulletin I am really impressed with the articles on history. I very much enjoyed the pieces about the former picture theatre in Ashburton and the Historical Radio Society of Australia.

We are really most fortunate to have you producing such a good magazine in this region. I have loved your articles on local histories.

Burwood Cemetery has some very tall trees.

Burwood Walks #21 – The “Cemetery Trail”

Our twenty-first walk concentrates on the suburbs of Burwood and Ashwood, with a short diversion into Mount Waverley to take in the view from Essex Heights. We also see one of the less well-known local bushland areas. This walk is gently undulating, and approximately 6km. We start and finish at the Burwood Cemetery, which is one of the older cemeteries in Melbourne. One point to note is that while we walk through several reserves, on the weekday morning I did this walk, all public toilets were locked, but there are some in Burwood Village itself.
