Dawson River Cemetery

 

Description

  The Dawson River Cemetery occupies a large undulating site by the river. It succeeded earlier cemeteries at Taree and displays inscriptions dating from as early as 1848. At the time of listing on Australian Cemeteries Index, it was in good order but due for mowing. Weeds and long grass within some of the grave enclosures needed attention.
