|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Ollera Cemetery is one of the earliest cemeteries in the New England Region of New South Wales. Its location was selected by the Everett brothers circa 1838. The cemetery is believed to have commenced in 1843. Although now closed to general burials, it is still available to descendants of the original pioneers.
It contains a brick chapel and seven areas of graves which face east and is divided into family plots rather than by religious denomination. Its boundary is marked by a post and wire fence with a white wooden gate on the northern boundary. Approximately 60m to the north of the cemetery, the entrance road is bounded by stone pillars supporting an iron gateway.
