Cemetery

If you're keen on local history, you can find out so much at the Queenscliff Cemetery, located in Point Lonsdale, because it's the final resting place of many cherished past members of the Borough community.

The cemetery was gazetted in 1857, with the first interments taking place in 1860. The pioneers buried in the cemetery all played a unique part in building our town: the soldiers of the Garrison, Port Phillip sea pilots, government servants, lighthouse keepers, doctors, parsons, chemists, bakers, butchers, storekeepers and builders of hotels.

The Agnes and George Baillieu Memorial Gates, at the corner of Jordan and Point Lonsdale Roads, are built of basalt and wrought iron and are dedicated to 'The Pioneers of the District 1954'. Other historical facts on the Queenscliff Cemetery can be researched through the Queenscliffe Historical Museum.
