Outback Grave Markers Inc acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country across Australia. We respect their Elders, past, present and emerging and include their stories to record an accurate and honest history of our land.

Outback Grave Markers started with an idea and two friends in November 2014, who wanted to preserve the history and stories of the pioneers of the Australian outback.

We research, record, publish and mark the last resting place of those who perished in the outback whilst building this great country. Stories and facts are published and available freely on this website. Outback Grave Markers collaborates closely with Traditional Owners on the land where we operate.

We would like to thank and acknowledge the work of Yvonne and Kevin Coate, the authors of "Western Australian Lonely Graves and Burials at Sea" (available from Hesperian Press), their work was the starting point for our research into finding lonely graves in Western Australia, and now expanding to the whole of Australia.

Outback Grave Markers is a self-funded, voluntary organisation dedicated to the preservation of our fast disappearing outback history.

We have researched and marked more than 2000 graves across Western Australia and have branches established in South Australia and Queensland.

 

The project has gained support from many people and the Four Wheel Drive clubs and Track Care WA Inc has been of great assistance in providing incentives to expand and work with similar groups caring for the Outback in different ways.

It is hoped that with more interested people we can expand the work and make sure as many graves as possible are marked and recorded to record history for tomorrow.
