The Smythesdale General Cemetery is located 2.5 km south of the town of Smythesdale and 1 km north of the town of Scarsdale. The first burial was recorded in 1859, with the cemetery officially gazetted on 7 September 1863. The cemetery is 20 acres and is divided into denominational areas with clusters of graves distributed within an unusual heart shaped configuration. A self-guided tour of twelve signs installed in 2006 by the Smythesdale Cemetery Trust are located at various points. These signs provide an historical background of the individuals and families buried in the cemetery.
