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.
