This page has not been formatted as a table as a table takes a long time to load compared to text.

This historic cemetery was rescued from the enveloping rain forest in 1993. Original rain forest species were replanted, including the Bird Wing vine, necessary in the breeding cycle of the endangered Richmond River Bird Wing butterfly.
    The team also built access paths, seats and rest areas. The information for the above summary, and the list that follows, were supplied in May, 1998, by the Tweed Shire Council.
    To reach the cemetery, exit the Pacific highway, about 16km south of
Tweed Heads, or about 13 km, north of Murwillumbah, travel 3km, & turn
right to cross the river, and right again, twice, to follow the river bank south.
