The Beechworth Cemetery is interesting from an historical point of view. The Chinese section features a pair of burning towns and a description of Chinese burial practices. We found a grave of a soldier that had been at the Battle of Waterloo.

A Mexican War veteran, two American Civil War vets, a Waterloo vet, a WW1 nurse, appropriately called 'Mena', and several WW1 and WW2 vets; what an amazing collection of historical graves.

This is a shared public cemetery which includes locations for various religious groups, including Strangers. The most poignant is the Chinese burial sites and burning towers. A must see for those interested in history

The cemetery is well worth a visit. Strolling around reading all the gravestones and information boards is a fascinating history lesson. Some very sad stories and a reminder how difficult it must have been for early settlers and immigrants. The Chinese Cemetery was impressive. Highly...More
