Old Rawbelle Road
Rawebelle Station was taken up by Adolphus Henry Trevethan in 1848. He was killed by local Aboriginal people in an altercation in March 1852 and was subsequently buried in the station cemetery. A number of other people who worked on the station are also buried in the cemetery, including a superintendent and bookkeeper of the station, JJ Jamieson (1876), Henry Le Breton (1892) and four unidentified people: a European man and woman and two chinese men, the latter presumably shepherds and all allegedly buried before 1858.
It's a neat and tidy cemetery. Maintained by the owners of Dareen Homestead.
Rawbelle is 541 km North West of Brisbane, Queensland. On Burnett Highway, 9 km west of Eidsvold, heading towards Cracow, turn right onto Old Rawbelle Road. The first 7 km is bitumen, after this it is all gravel road. Travel 29.5 km to road signs and take the road on the right. Travel another 19.5 km and Dareen Homestead is on the left. Continue on road, over one lane bridge, for 11.5 km. Cemetery is 100 meters off road on a bush track. It can be seen from the road. We accessed Rawbelle Cemetery from the south side of Eidsvold but can also be accessed via Abercorn, on the north side of Eidsvold. It will still be mostly gravel road.
