Gayndah is a wonderful little town on the banks of the Burnett, perched above permanent water that supplies the zillions of citrus plantations in the area. Above the town is a striking outcrop of rock, and from the lookout there the cemetery can be seen directly below with the river meandering away into the distance, where eventually it reached Maryborough and the coast.
Many of the pioneers came up the valley of the Burnett from landings direct off sailing ships at Hervey Bay.

These records are derived from photos of the headstones and are now entered in the live MOP database attached to this website. The listings below will show a green tick if they have been transferred.
