Benalla Lawn and Memorial Cemetery

Situated 4km from the heart of Benalla, the Benalla Lawn and Memorial Cemetery is an attractive and tranquil place of repose for the pioneers and residents of the North East Victorian district. Dating back to the mid nineteenth century, the Benalla Cemetery is rich in Australian history, including many noted identities from the infamous Ned Kelly Legend. Historic walks and trails make the Benalla Cemetery a must-see point of reference.
