Here, loved ones are laid to rest in the beautiful bush surroundings of the Lawn Cemetery along the bank of the mighty Katherine River. Wander through the grounds and learn more about the reality and hardships of early life in the outback.

Katherine Cemetery was established in 1934. It is set on the Katherine River, amid tranquil bush, and offers a fascinating historical and genealogical account of the establishment and development of the town. As well as historic headstones there is a memorial wall in the rotunda recording who lived and died locally.
