Description

Established in 1842, the historic Australind Pioneer Cemetery (previously Mt. Claremont Cemetery) is located on Old Coast Road at Leschenault, on the crest of a limestone hill.

The first burial at the Australind Pioneer Cemetery took place on the 13th March 1842, it was that of Dr Anthony French Carpenter, a Medical Officer onboard the Barque "Parkfield". Dr Carpenter was about thirty at the time of his death. This unfortunate event was a year after the arrival of the first settlers.

Others buried here are Marshall Walter Clifton and his wife Elinor along with many of their descendants. A special South West feature in spring is an abundance of wildflowers of all varieties.
