Features

  • Historic cemetery
  • Beautiful views of surrounding farmland
The Glengower (Campbelltown) Cemetery lies in a quiet field at the end of a modest bush track, with beautiful views across sprawling farmlands. This cemetery is home to many interesting monuments, including an attractive stone seat dedicated to pioneering families Cumming and Robertson and multiple large, impressive headstones. A stroll among the stones offers a fascinating glimpse into the past.

Of particular significance are the graves of Donald Campbell and Alexander Clarke. Campbell managed and owned the historical  Glengower pastoral run and Clarke later leased the property.

The Glengower Pioneers Memorial Grave, a very notable monument with a fascinating history, is located just a few minutes from the Glengower Cemetery.
