Sydney’s Centennial Park will be home to a “Grave of Thrones” this weekend, ahead of the final season return of hit series Game of Thrones.
Created for Foxtel by DDB Sydney, Revolver/Will O’Rourke and The Glue Society the marketing stunt took sculptors and builders hundreds of manhours of work.
Spanning over 2,000 square metres, it features a collection of gravestones, including two grand family mausoleums housing the deceased members of House Stark and House Baratheon and the headstones of some of Game of Thrones’ most infamous characters, including Joffrey Lannister, Ramsay Bolton, Khal Drogo, Tywin Lannister, Littlefinger and Olenna Tyrell.
Game of Thrones fans are invited to pay their respects at the graveyard, which is open to the public from Friday, April 12 to Sunday, April 14, from 7am – 6pm. Visitors are also encouraged to bring tributes to lay on the tombs of their most beloved characters. Those at the ‘Grave of Thrones’ will be able to download a map at graveofthrones.com, where they can also find an audio tour of the cemetery, illustrating the meticulous detail featured on each grave.
Game of Thrones returns Monday, April 15 at 11.00am AEST.
