Cemetery 591 - Mount Surprise Memorial

Mount Surprise Memorial

Gulf Development Road

Mount Surprise





Mount Surprise Memorial Cemetery comprises a small area bounded by a circle of rocks. It contains only two marked graves together with a plaque listing the names of others believed to have been buried in the unmarked graves at this location.

Peter and Karen Patterson-Kane visited the little cemetery and made digital images of the inscriptions during April 2010. Although the information provided on the memorial plaque is scant, we have been able to identify most of the persons named after searching the Queensland indices of births, deaths and marriages. Peter's images may be viewed from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.

The cemetery is on Gulf Development Road adjacent to the eastern railway crossing at Mount Surprise. Lat -18.145505 Long 144.32102

Mount Surprise Memorial Cemetery is controlled by the Etheridge Shire Council. For further information, contact Council at PO Box 12, Georgetown QLD 4871; phone 07 4062 1233
