In September, my parents and I made a journey to Canberra by car, again to see close relatives. We decided to take a scenic route and see some of the country we usually see through the window of the express train - Junee, Cootamundra, Murrumburrah-Harden etc. We stopped to take photographs of many Churches on our journey and we also decided to stop for a couple of minutes at the Illabo Cemetery. The Illabo Cemetery is located just off the Olympic Hwy, 1 km west of Illabo. Illabo is between Junee and Cootamundra.
I took a selection of photographs of the gravestones at the Illabo Cemetery, though my photographs are not great quality. I did not find any surnames from my family tree but I thought there must have been some reason why I stopped to photograph gravestones at that cemetery. Therefore I am placing the photographs here for other genealogists. I hope they are useful for someone's family history.

We ended our stop at the Illabo Cemetery by having the privilege of seeing a Superb Parrot (a threatened species) in a gum tree just near the last group of graves I photographed.
