Nebo (old Fort Cooper)


Nebo is a small rural town just inland from Mackay, on the east coast of Queensland. It was an early staging point for overland travel from the central highlands to the coast, standing on the western side of the main coastal ranges. Nowadays it finds itself at the eastern edge of a vast coalfield, plus it is an important cattle and grain transport center.

The cemetery itself is quite apart from the town, on a tree-dappled ridge with well maintained grass, still laid out in the 'family plot' format of yesteryear.
