Bonaventure Cemetery is a rural cemetery located on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah, Georgia.

It is the largest of the city's municipal cemeteries, containing nearly 160 acres (0.65聽km2).

The entrance to the cemetery is located at 330 Bonaventure Road. Immediately inside the gates is the large and ornate Gaston Tomb.
