World War Warriors Walk (Karori Cemetery)

The walk is a self-guided tour. It covers the lives of men and women who fought in the Boer War, both World Wars, the Korean, Malayan and Vietnam wars, as well as in United Nations peacekeeping operations.

Most of the walk is within the Servicemen's cemetery which was established in 1916 by the Wellington City Council, and a short part of the walk includes older graves in the general part of the cemetery.


The walk is in two parts, which should each take about 45 minutes.


Start at the centre path facing the Memorial marble steps in the circular section of the Servicemen's cemetery. Follow the directional markers and the map in the brochure below.
