The Melbourne General Cemetery is a large (43 hectare) necropolis located 2 km north of the city of Melbourne in the suburb of Carlton North.

Established in 1852 it was the first Victorian cemetery to be designed like a large public park. Today, it continues this tradition, offering visitors a place of reflection in the heart of Carlton. Along with the heritage listed GateHouse, there are 43 hectares of manicured gardens, providing seasonal colour against a Melbourne city backdrop.

The cemetery is notably the resting place of four Prime Ministers of Australia, more than any other necropolis within Australia. Former Prime Minister Harold Holt's headstone is a memorial as his remains have never been discovered.
