Tewantin Cemetery is 16 km east from Cooroy, on the Cooroy-Tewantin Rd.

One stone proclaims Mary Hall, who died 24th Jun 1876 to be the first, dying for the honour, no doubt. However, there is a very worn sandstone monument for a child, Isabella Louisa Clark 13-4-1876. It has become undecipherable over the last two years. The death indexes reveal she was the daughter of Stephen Clark & Jane Cumming.

The cemetery is situated in a clearing on the edge of scrub country. Unique to this cemetery is the Memorial Bush Garden. It is a series of winding gravel pathways, lined by knee-high cement markers, similar to the old milestones. The Plaques, about 20cm by 15 cm are fixed to the lectern tops of these markers. Yes, it is in the bush.
