Mt. Wesley Cemetery
Kaipara District
Northland  New Zealand

Cemetery notes and/or description:

Mt. Wesley was the original cemetery for the town of Dargaville, which is itself on the northern extremity of the Kaipara Harbout. Nearby is Te Kopuru, and behind the hill country that provided much of the timber shipped out of the north.

Today the town is a quiet little place on the edge of the Wairoa river, steep green mountains rising to the north and west. Several kilometers directly west is the coast and the wild beaches that also have toheroa shellfish.


There are two cemeteries that are referred to as Mt. Wesley. Many will designate one as the NEW Mt. Wesley while the other will be called the OLD Mt. Wesley.
