Off Peninsular Developmental Road,
The tiny Laura Cemetery was visited by Peter and Karen Patterson-Kane in June 2010 when they made digital images of every visible inscription. Peter says that the fence surrounding the cemetery has fallen down and the grounds were untidy. There is a sign at the cemetery itself but not at the roadside to indicate the access track.
There is little information as to dates or ages on most of the markers but of the few that do carry any information other than name, dates range from 1901 to 2000. Peter's images may be viewed from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.
From Cooktown, drive south on Cooktown Developmental Road for 79.7km, turn right into Peninsula Developmental Road for 43.9km to the cemetery. Lat -15.562294 Long 144.445410
