Tambaroora General Cemetery
The General Cemetery, often referred to as the Protestant Cemetery since there is a separate Catholic burial ground, contains many unmarked graves. Those that are marked include memorials dating from the 1850s. Many of those buried here died in mining accidents or from diseases that raged from time to time in the overcrowded and harsh conditions in which the gold miners and their families lived in the roaring days.
