Springsure

 Pos S 24°06.283

Springsure is some 50 km south of Emerald, in central Queensland. It lies under the lip of an imposing cliff face of a local range of hills, and is just east of the Great Dividing Range, at these lattitudes a mere hump in the endless panorama of scrubby gullies.
It is one of the older townships, with quite a lot of pioneering history associated with the establishment of cattle stations. These stations still exist, but cropping of cotton and grain is becoming more important now since the establishment of a dam and irrigation scheme near Emerald.
The cemetery itself is quite large, and is well kept with regularly mowed grass and some care taken to preserve the older stones. To find it one must take the small road towards the golf course and the cemetery is on the left a few hundred meters short of the golf course gate.
As with most of these records, most headstones later than about 1950 have NOT been included, unless there is an obvious family connection.
