JED VALE CEMETERY WALK

Address
707 Gore Bay Road
Gore Bay

Distance: 45 mins return
Fitness Level: Easy - mixed use track

Park at the Gore bay children’ play ground at the north end of Gore Bay – just to the south of the Buxton Camping ground.  

Walk north along the beach.

As you pass the low land where the Jed river estuary is located, move up the beach above the high tide mark.  Shortly after the estuary you’ll notice a sign in the shrubs marking the “Jed Vale Cemetery”.  Follow the path along the north side of the estuary – water birds and rural scenery abound for the odd photo stop.  The path clearly winds up the slope to the cemetery which has some council provided descriptions and a few marked graves.  Please be respectful of the graves – they are local resident’s ancestors.  Beware of you footing in the long grass as the ground is uneven.
