Fairburn

 
The area considered to be the Far North of New Zealand is that part of the North Island north of the Mangamuka ranges. These are bush-clad, and extend virtually completely from coast to coast. On the northern face, where the main highway finally ceases to wind is Victoria Valley, and just to the east is Oruru and somewhat nearer, Fairburns.

The farming communities that became established in these tucked away valleys were isolated and self sufficient in virtually everything, once they had broken in their bush-clad hills. The records in this cemetery, along with the associated Peria, Victoria Valley and Mangonui records provide a clear record of the lives of our pioneer past in Northern NZ.

All graves are included irrespective of date.
