Meeting point

When arriving at 330 Bonaventure Rd, look for the pillared entrance with 2 goddess statues. As you drive through, follow to the right, which puts the red brick office building on your right. Exactly 50 feet (15 meters) up to your left is your first paved road (Mullryne Way). Take that left, following Mullryne Way as it snakes all the way down to the lower river bluff, and where it ends you'll observe a gravel parking lot on your right. Parking is free, so park there. Your additional landmarks will be a bridge in the distance and a marina. There is a single picnic table on the far side of the parking lot going towards the marina. Your guide will meet you in the general area of the table.

Scott was a very good guide with wonderful stories and a lot of knowledge about Bonaventure and the people who are buried there. Because of the heat, he had enough water for everyone. The poster we received was also a wonderful keepsake. The graveyard is beautiful and Scott's explanation made it even better. Highly recommended.
