Cemetery notes and/or description:
Ornate wrought-iron fences and crumbling gravestones are scattered on a rocky hillside.

Visitors can walk the signposted trail from the Collingwood village up the Gibbs Road track, along Orion Street.

Tamati Pirimona Marino was a chief at Aorere when the New Zealand Company first visited.
He signed the Treaty of Waitangi and is buried at the Old Collingwood Cemetery.

Fred Tyree was a pioneer photographer who recorded the early days of European settlement.
His exceptional black and white images are on display at Aorere Centre, Collingwood.

An extensive search of archived records indicates that this poineer cemetery was the main burial ground in Aorere district, although some family graves were on private land. This historic cemetery was in use from 1857 with the land belatedly gazetted as a public cemetery on 16 September 1897.
