Located on private property on Curreeki Creek Road just to the south of Coolongolook. The grave site is approximately 600 metres from Pacific Highway on the south side of the road, before Curreeki Creek crossing.

The Worth family graves record the circumstances and way of life in the isolated rural communities that continued to well into the late nineteenth century. Isolated rural properties traditionally set aside an area as a burial ground for the property occupiers and nearby family members. The Worth family graves are well kept and prominently visible examples of that tradition. They are important records of Coolongolook’s history and the Worth family history. The headstones (or at least the later headstones) are good examples of their era and are generally in good condition.

The graveyard is a rectangular area approximately 14m x 14m fenced with a white timber rail fence of sawn hardwood and set in grazing land in what has possibly been the house paddock to the original dwelling. The later graves are in generally good condition but earlier graves have possibly been lost. Graves face east.
