Features

The Bristol Hill Pioneer Cemetery was in use from 1854 to 1859 and was first known as Quartz Hill. The cemetery is believed to have over 400 people buried in it, however only a handful of them are named on a plaque at the site.

There is an attractive memorial plaque at the site, erected in 2004, as well as an older stone engraved with the words "pioneer cemetery early 1850s". There is also a large, fascinating stone cross in the ground a short way into the bush.

A short walk further down Weller Street brings you to the Bristol Hill Playground, where you will find a free electric barbecue, picnic tables and a toilet block, and a short walk up the hill through the bush brings you to the impressive Bristol Hill Memorial Tower.
