The Wentworth Cemetery has some very old burials, with the earliest dating back to the 1850s. Many of the district's pioneers are buried at the Wentworth Cemetery including several well-known businessmen and their families (William Gunn and John Egge).
The occupants have not always rested easily here, as the front fence and some of the graves were moved back to allow room for a road and the building of Lock 10.
During floods the cemetery was impossible to get to and funerals had to be boated in.
A Cemetery Walking Tour map is available at the Wentworth Visitor Information Centre or through the Wentworth Shire Council office.

Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
