Foxtel pays tribute to Game of Thrones with a Grave of Thrones
Sydney's Centennial Park is going to be packed deep with Stark corpses.
To celebrate the upcoming season 8 of Game of Thrones, Foxtel's doing something a little bit different... and just a touch macabre.
The new season of Game of Thrones kicks off on 15 April on Foxtel at 11am AEST, but if you're in or around Sydney, you can pay a rather special tribute. That's because Foxtel has built a "Grave of Thrones" at Sydney's Centennial Park, open to the public from 7am to 6pm between 12 April and 14 April.
The Grave of Thrones is a sprawling 2,000 square metre installation paying tribute to more than 100,000 individual deaths through the 7 seasons so far of the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin's books. That's a lot of dead folk.
You probably don't care about every lost Lannister soldier, but it's headlined by some larger family crypts paying attention to the more well-known members of the series. So if you've ever wanted to peer (or sneer) at the graves of Joffrey Baratheon, Ramsay Bolton, Khal Drogo, Tywin Lannister, Littlefinger or Olenna Tyrell, you can go right ahead and do so.
Before you ask, yes, there's a Hodor gravestone. Foxtel is encouraging visitors to bring tributes to their fallen heroes, so you might want to act quickly while you can still find Hodor's final resting place before it's buried under an avalanche of flowers and fluffy white direwolves.
Foxtel has set up a site with an interactive map so you can find your way around the Grave of Thrones if you do choose to visit.
