Le Bons Bay Cemetery opened in 1862 and is still open for full burials

Le Bons Bay Cemetery opened in 1862 and is still open for full burials. It is generally flat with a moist treed section near the western end. The rural location of the cemetery is significant, from all sides of the cemetery there are rural vistas which helps provide a feeling of openness. A large area of the cemetery is fenced off and either grazed or open for public access to the lagoon.

The cemetery has a formal layout with distinctive family areas. The cemetery has a variety of graves/ headstones from older Victorian style to more recent upright memorial headstones.

The cemetery has strong community associations and is maintained by the local community.
