Description

Pioneer Cemetery - Australind (was Mt. Claremont Cemetery)

Approximately 2.2km north of Henton Cottage on Old Coast Road at Leschenault, on the crest of a limestone hill.

The first burial at the Pioneer Cemetery Australind, took place on the 13th March 1842, it was that of Dr Anthony French Carpenter, Medical Officer on board the Barque "Parkfield". Dr. Carpenter was about thirty at the time of his death. This unfortunate event was a year after the arrival of the first settlers. Others buried here are Marshall Walter Clifton and his wife Elinor along with many of their descendants. A special south west feature in spring is an abundance of wildflowers of all varieties.
