The Cemetery

The cemetery lies about a kilometre to the east of Galong House and is likely to date back to the 1830s. In 1987 the National Trust of Australia classified Galong Cemetery recognising its historical and cultural significance.

The Friends of Galong Cemetery were established in 1994 and obtained grants from the Heritage Council of NSW with further assistance from the Harden Shire Council, the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn.

Using expert masons and local voluntary labour the cemetery was restored and in 1999 their endeavours were rewarded with a National Trust Heritage Award. 

 Access to the cemetery is along a marked pathway accessed from the main driveway.
