Features

  • Bushland cemetery
  • Pioneer memorial
Formerly known as the Sandy Creek Cemetery, this peaceful bushland cemetery sits alongside a dirt road in Welshmans Reef and features a pioneer memorial, multiple gravestones, and lots of simple graves marked by wooden posts. 

The graves with monuments / headstones are situated to the far left and right of the cemetery, with a huge amount of previously unmarked graves (with the wooden posts added more recently) over on the left. 

A stone monument stands by the front fence in memory of the district's pioneers, and displays the following text:

Welshmans Reef Cemetery
1870 - 1956

This tablet was laid in grateful memory of the pioneers of this district

Unveiled in Australia's bicentennial year, 1988.
