Kinda dead there. But an interesting look back in time. Complement your visit with a walk on the adjoining shoreline

Spent an enjoyable time here. It was very interesting reading the different stones, a good history lesson. It is well maintained with ample seating to enjoy the quietness. Wished I had more time there.

Facing the ocean this is an old and special cemetery. Many historical figures from the early days of the province and colony of British Columbia are buried at Ross Bay. The Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria usually offers Ghost Tours in October.

It's a great place to wonder around and view the headstones. If you can, take a guided tour of the Cemetery as there's a lot of famous people buried there.
