Duaringa is a truckstop on the main highway between Rockhampton and Blackwater. The main cemetery is right beside the highway in the center of the township, on the left when entering from Rockhampton. It is very well kept, with daily watering and regular mowing; truly an example.
In spite of only being a service center for the surrounding stations, it does have some interesting entries. In addition to the main cemetery, a second collection of gravestones may be found at the old hall. Turn right at the two service stations and drive for about 200 meters.
|Duaringa Shire Council has made available the official listings, which is very much appreciated. Be aware that the listings below do not include all modern interrments, for our policy is to have a nominal cutoff date of about 1945 except where family threads provide an interest. |
Headstone pictures are available by emailing the code revealed by moving the mouse over the blue cross in each entry.
