Depot Glen Cemetery
Address: Hawker Gate Road, Milparinka 2880 NSW
Depot Glen Cemetery is the place of burial of James Poole, second in command of Charles Sturt's expedition into the Corner Country of NSW in 1845. The party was forced by severe drought to camp for about six months by a water hole. Poole died just after the rain finally came and the party was leaving the area. He was buried under a beefwood tree near the site of their enforced camp. The historic site is on private property (Mt Poole Station) but is open to the public.
