At Wentworth Cemetery there are graves dating back to the 1850's as well as a fascinating walking tour.

Many of the district's pioneers are buried at the Wentworth cemetery including several well know businessmen such as William Gunn and John Egge.

The occupants have not always rested easily here, as the front fence and some of the graves were moved back to allow room for a road and the building of Lock 10.

During floods the cemetery was impossible to get to and funerals had to be boated in.

A fascinating 'Walking Tour' leaflet is available from both the Wentworth Town Library and the Wentworth Visitor Information Centre for those who would like to explore the stories behind the Cemetery and some of it's occupants.
