Kingsborough Cemetery is located north west of Dimbulah Qld. Drive west from Mareeba along the Burke Development Road to Dimbulah then turn left up the Thornborough road (dirt road) and follow the signs to Kingsborough turning left at Thornborough approx. 40km from Dimbulah. About 2km before you get to the Kingsborough cattle station there is a turn to the left at the cemetery sign.
This cemetery is unkempt and overgrown with several graves without headstones as well as the ones listed. Kingsborough and district is part of the Hodgkinson Goldfields discovered in 1876 by Irish explorer James Venture Mulligan. The graves range 1884-1910 but only a few with headstones.
I visited the Kingsborough Cemetery in June 2008, transcribed this list from the visable headstones and photographed the graves.
