The Reserve for the Pooncarie Cemetery was notified April 1903 and was managed by a Trust Board until approximately 1958. At that time there were insufficient board members to manage the Trust. In March 2010 Wentworth Shire Council was approached to become Trustees of this historical site.
At the Council meeting held 23 June 2010 Council resolved to accept trust management of the reserve. Pooncarie Cemetery is located on Cemetery Road Pooncarie on the left just before you leave Pooncarie on the way to Menindee.
