|Emerald is a township in the central Queensland highlands, on the Capricorn Highway that runs west from Rockhampton.
It is about 100 km south of Clermont, and has developed extensive horticulture based on the Fairburn Dam which provides the necessary irrigation.
It is also noted for being almost exactly on the Tropic of Capricorn.
The Nogoa River curves around the town, and the cemetery is on the banks, just slightly NE of the main town center.
We have now gone to a live on-line database called MOP ('Myra's Other Place') and the records listed below are steadily being copied over. Once a record is there a green tick will show alongside the entry. The MOP database has a lot more than just cemetery records and is worth checking out here where you can log in as Guest password guest.
