Condobolin Sacred Park is the name given to the Condobolin Old General Cemetery when it was converted into a park under the provisions of the Cemeteries Act. All the headstones were removed and none were retained for relocation.

A brick monument was erected with a plaque recording the names of those known to have been buried there. In fact, as contributor Garry Batt points out, the list is far from complete and probably only lists (with several errors) those whose headstones were still readable at the time of the conversion. Those whose names are recorded on the monument died between 1861 and 1878.

Garry visited the site and photographed the monument in January 2004. In compiling the list of inscriptions, reference has been made to the NSW indexes of births, deaths and marriage for further information. The image may be viewed and downloaded from the list of inscriptions for this cemetery.

The site is maintained by the Lachlan Shire Council. For durther information, contact Council at PO Box 216, Condobolin NSW 2877; phone 02 6895 4444; email: council@lachlan.nsw.gov.au
