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.

The cemetery is well maintained. It is divided into different section. Especially the Chinese section has an interesting history.

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.

Beechworth cemetery holds a lot of history of the early days of the area and up to the current era. It reflects how far in the last 100 - 150 years we have come in overcoming disease and the causes of premature death. The sad...More
