Boothill Humour

28) Graveyard

Boothill at Mogo's Original Gold Rush Colony on the NSW South Coast, demonstrates the effect of the 1849 American Gold Rush on the Australian population. The humor on the gravestones on this unconsecrated site, provides a lighthearted note to a walk through the northern tip of the property on the edge of the Mogo State Forest. At dusk the birds come home to roost in the surrounding gum trees.
