A must see when in Beechworth. The Chinese Smoking Towers appear to still be in use. The map of the cemetery was helpful to find the historic graves. Well kept and lovely setting.

We went to the funeral of a close friend. Such a lovely spot to be buried; so quiet. Well maintained and many historic graces going back to the gold-rush days.

Not too bad, a good heritage site to reflect on the immigration for the gold mining. Lovely architecture, pity the heritage rules can't allow more themed architecture, would be nice to see more added.

We visited in the rain but the paths were well maintained and not muddy. The whole area was clearly signposted and easy to navigate. Always sad to see those who died so young (of preventable diseases) and fascinating how segregated everything was in graveyards.

We wanted to see the historical graves and Chinese burning towels. Fascinating walk thru times gone. The map supplied was ok but a little confusing. It would have been great to have a full list of graves so we could identify family.

Wanted to see the Chinese part of the cemetery and the trustee himself was there and showed us around so we learnt more from him than if we had just walked around ourselves. He explained so much to us.
