Oakhampton Cemetery 1849-1896

We ventured out yesterday afternoon to find the Oakhapmton Cemetery and I quite sad with what we came across. This cemetery was opened 51 years after Australia was discovered, this is a land mark that is not being appreciated or being looked after. This is our history!
This cemetery was flooded in the Maitland flood in 1950's and a lot of the headstones have sunk and the writing on the headstones have faded.
