Built in the 1800s, McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery is a heritage-listed cemetery containing over 2,500 graves throughout a well-maintained landscape with trees and flowers. Come here to pay respects and read the headstones, which offer interesting information like the deceased's name, years of birth and death, last place of residence, and occupation. Notice how different nationalities, levels of society, and even religions, including Protestant, Roman Catholic, and non-Christian, blend together without division between the headstones.
