Menzies Cemetery

In 1894, a prospector named Robert Menzies stubbed his toe on the rich gold bearing rocks and the town of Menzies was born. The population peaked at an estimated 10 000 people and boasted 13 hotels 3 banks its own breweries and cordial factories a post office with a staff of more than 20 a school with 205 pupils a public library and 4 churches. But the decline in gold mining meant Menzies rapidly diminished and many satellite towns disappeared altogether. Today many reminders of Menzies former glory still                                                                             remain.
The Menzies Pioneer Cemetery provides an insight into the lives of our pioneering families.
