Sai Wan War Cemetery
Among those buried at Sai Wan War Cemetery are 33 Australians and one New Zealander. These individuals were brought to Hong Kong for burial from theatres across the Pacific. We have produced a guide to these graves that includes information about these service personnel. Hard copies will be available at the cemetery while stocks last. You can also download the guide in PDF form for printing, or for use on mobile devices, or view it online.
Location and visiting information
Sai Wan War Cemetery is in the east of Hong Kong island, about 11kms from Central. It is most easily reached by taking the MTR Island line to Chai Wan. From there you can take a taxi from the rank below the station, or board Public Light Bus 16M or 16X which runs from Chai Wan station to Stanley, requesting it to stop at the Sai Wan War Cemetery. Please note that there are extremely limited parking spaces available.
The cemetery is open to the public from 8am – 5pm daily.
