Delissaville Belyuen Cemetery

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The site comprises the community cemetery at Belyuen and it is still in use. The cemetery contains early and recent graves within an enclosure defined by a chainwire mesh fence. There are shelters inside the perimeter to provide some shade during burial services. The Delissaville Cemetery, located at Belyuen, Cox Peninsula west of Darwin, is of heritage significance to the Territory as a uniquely Aboriginal cemetery extending for a period of over 60 years. As the final resting-place for at least 100 Aboriginal people who died in or near Delissaville from the early-mid 20th century up to present times, and for repatriated ancestral remains of Larrakia and other Aboriginal people from the early 1900s, the cemetery holds high significance for the Belyuen, Larrakia and wider Aboriginal communities for spiritual, social and religious reasons.
