Heritage Listing: Original Bunbury Public Cemetery -
During the mid-1980’s, some headstones from this closed Bunbury [1] Pioneer Park Cemetery were relocated to the current Cemetery and put on display for all to visit.
The headstones from the Original Bunbury Cemetery are now located in rows of ‘pioneer headstones’, placed side by side on an elevated embankment, at the new Bunbury Cemetery.
The old Bunbury Cemetery is now public open space named ‘Pioneer Park’ in recognition of its former use as a burial ground for many of Bunbury’s first settlers. A timber plaque near the Wellington Street entrance reminds visitors of the earlier use. There is now also a commemorative structure which includes a list of names of people believed to have been buried at the site
