Stuart Town Cemetery

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

For a fascinating and sobering reminder of the hardships faced by the early inhabitants of Central Australia, visit Alice Springs’ first cemetery to see the graves of the earliest pioneers.

The Stuart Town Cemetery (or the Alice Springs Pioneer Cemetery Alice Springs) is an historic record of the early residents of Alice Springs and region. The Cemetery was the town’s first, dating from 1889. Seven graves are examples of the earliest pioneers who lived in the area, and over 50 people are known to be buried here.

Read the inscriptions on headstones and understand more about tradition and aspects of social history. There are examples of 19th century cemetery furniture in remote locations, as well as significant imported cast iron markers and fences and locally fashioned timber pieces.
