Queenstown Cemetery... The first recorded burial in this pioneer cemetery was in 1861. There are over 400 registered burials on this site, many from the early mining days are unrecorded, including a number of Chinese.

The heritage vegtetation dates from the 1860s with boundary plantings of Mexican and Italian Cypress. The localised Yuccas, Jonquils, Daffodils and Belladonna Lilies on the grave plots contrast with the background of native trees, grasses and wildflowers in this idylic 1.7 ha bushland reserve.

Smiths Gully Landcare have carried out weed maintenance on this reserve and welcome the Friends and Relations of Queenstown Cemetery (for more information phone John on 9710 1473).
