Beaufort Cemetery

(Near Port Wakefield, in South Australia)

To find Beaufort you need to begin driving from Adelaide towards Port Augusta, and when you take the highway east from Port Wakefield one of the turns to the right will show the sign 'Cemetery'. Turning off on to that gravel road takes you a little north of east for several kilometers to where a side road again points to a cemetery.

Looking around it becomes clear the whole area is dedicated to seasomal grain growing, and in fact the site is not that far from Balaklava, but in the present case you will find the second gravel road you turned right into passes a small sign announcing the cemetery; you have to recognise the headsones several hundred meters away in the field and be prepared to leg it to the enclosure.
