The final season of Game of Thrones is right around the corner and fans just can’t keep calm! For many, the journey of the show was really morbid, as many fan-favourite characters didn’t make it till the end. Over the seven seasons of this epic fantasy show, fans lost their beloved heroes, fierce villains and adorable dire wolves. Nothing can vanquish the pain of their deaths, but now you can certainly pay your last respects to them in a Sydney graveyard. An Australian cable TV company named Foxtel, which streams HBO’s Game of Thrones in the country, has created a temporary graveyard in the city dedicated to the show.
This spooky display is located in the Centennial Park and has 34 mock gravestones, statues, monuments and mausoleums, all of this to honour the tragic end of the characters. Anyone can mourn or pay respect to their favourite character
There is a separate space for the Stark family that contains the graves of Ned Stark, his wife Catelyn Stark and their kids Rickon, Robb and his wife Talisa. Another family that found its niche in the graveyard was Baratheon family – one can find the graves of King Robert Baratheon who was killed suspiciously while hunting, alongside his children Myrcella who was poisoned, and Tommen, who died by suicide.
The graveyard also has the headstones of some of the Game of Thrones’ most infamous characters. The list includes Joffrey Lannister, Ramsay Bolton, Khal Drogo, Tywin Lannister, Littlefinger and Olenna Tyrell.
The graveyard has been created by a huge team of passionate sculptors, designers, painters and builders of Australia. They worked hundreds of hours to build graves richly layered in GoT stories and references. The audience also has the option to go for an audio tour which will have more detail about the symbolism on each grave.
The graveyard will remain open to the public
