Babinda Cemetery

The Babinda Cemetery lies on the foot slopes of the Great Dividing Range approximately 2 kilometres north of Babinda. It is neatly presented and prominent to the Bruce Highway. A modest shelter is located at the lower end of the cemetery from which a rudimentary vehicle track leads uphill, through the centre of the cemetery, to the newer section. Several maturing trees are scattered across the lower levels of the cemetery; which is primarily vegetated with grass.

At least 7 First World War veterans are buried within the cemetery. They include 2 members of Australian Tunnelling companies - Sapper Henry Crane and Sergeant Alfred Huntley - and former Babinda newsagent, Albert Turnley. A small concrete brick toilet and adjacent shed are located part way up on the southern boundary.

The Babinda Cemetery forms part of the Cairns Region ANZAC Trail. To see more information about this trail, see the below links:
