Mount Mulligan Cemetery
Mareeba Shire, Queensland, Australia

Submitted by Leighann Mansfield, Aug 28, 2008, last edited Sep 10, 2008 [leighannmansfield@bigpond.com]. Total records = 136.

Mount Mulligan Cemetery is located northwest 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 Mount Mulligan approx. 50km from Dimbulah. The cemetery is located approximately 2km further along from the deserted township.

Mount Mulligan and district is part of the Hodgkinson Goldfields discovered in 1876 by Irish explorer James Venture Mulligan but the town itself is a reknown Coal Mining area. Mount Mulligan was mined 1914-1958 but it is best known as the site of the Mount Mulligan mine disaster 19th September, 1921. The mine exploded at about 9:25am and was heard some 60km away in Mount Molloy killing every man employed, 75 husbands, fathers and sons in total. 74 bodies were finally retrieved, the last on 8 February 1922. The entire population of the town at this time was 300.

The town did not have a cemetery but land was consecrated and a cemetery established to bury 69 of the victims. Some however were taken to be, buried in Mareeba and surrounds. The graves range 1921-1974 but again many remain undeliniated.

I photographed and transcribed the graves at Mount Mulligan from headstones and a cemetery listing board on May 07, 2008.
