Murgon is an important crossroads town in Queensland history. It is located on the fertile highlands near Kingaroy, and the area is noted for its agriculture.

Many of the families buried in the cemetery have in fact come from South Australia, bringing their families overland at first, then later around the coast by ship.

These records are derived from photos of the headstones, so in most cases pictures are available on request. Simply move the mouse over the blue or red cross to read the file name to request, then email us.

The cemetery can be found at the northern end of the town, near the golf course.
