  • An interesting place to visit if you are interested in the history of the area. Not much to see or do except explore and see who once settled in the Cairns area  more »
  • A very peaceful cemetery and relatively well maintained. All those residing were listed and numbered so it would have been easy to find a long gone relative. Unfortunately ours were not to be found.  more »

  • Nice place, pretty dead though.
  • Don't be put off by previous poster. Quiet enough to imagine. A memorial to someone who died to malaria. A lamp post which reminds me of Lantern Waste in Narnia.
