Pioneer Cemetery

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Entrenched in a deep history from the days of the gold rush, Pioneer Cemetery located in Charters Towers, gives an interesting insight in the hardships faced by the pioneers of the time. Containing graves from those who were buried between 1872 and 1895, mining accidents, fires, murders, child birth and general hardship are some of the reasons that there are more than 5000 people buried in the early cemetery.

Cemetery records are available for viewing at the Charters Towers Visitor Information Centre.
