Babinda is or was a small sugar town on the main road to Cairns. If you are driving north, it is the next center after Innisfail, wedged between the mountain on the left and a green low valley on the right. If you have driven up from Townsville, you are probably wondering just how far away Cairns is, and will likely miss the cemetery with graves sprinkled on the hillside just to your left as you leave the thin line of houses.
This cemetery is maintained by the Cairns City Council, and is tidy, with well kept lanes and verges. There is a convenient layby beside the road, and behind the cemetery the hill rises abruptly to a bush-clad mountain worthy of New Zealand. A nice, quiet place.
|At this time not all headstones are listed, as the logistics of getting to this cemetery with enough time and light to complete the photographic exercise are formidable.
