To reach the cemetery, take the Warrego Highway and exit onto the Two Tree Hills Road. Follow this road around, passing the exit to Berlins Road. The cemetery, which is well signed, is on your right.
This cemetery is on the original site of Saint Boniface Catholic Church which opened in March 1882 in the Tallegalla area. The church was moved to the adjacent township of Marburg in 1900 and a small number of headstones remain. There are a number of unmarked graves.
My family and I visited the cemetery in December 2008 and found it well fenced and recently mowed. The following is a listing of transcriptions from all surviving headstones.
