Ferry Reach.jpg

There are two British military cemeteries at Ferry Reach with graves from the yellow fever epidemic in the 1860s. The first is the small walled cemetery close to the house at the end of Ferry Point and the second can be found just off the Railway Trail overlooking the North Shore to the east of Whalebone Bay. This is a walled communal grave with a central cross memorial to those from the 2nd Battalion of the Queen’s Royal Rifles who died of yellow fever.
