The earliest burial in the Booyal Cemetery appears to date from 1901, however the cemetery was not gazetted by the State government until 1929.

Booyal Cemetery is located around five kilometres northeast of the Bruce Highway, Booyal section, in bushland. The cemetery occupies only a small portion of a larger lot of approximately three hectares and consists of a cleared and levelled area, surrounded with a timber post and four-wire fence. Access is via a metal gate from the west.

There is only a small number of marked graves, which are set towards the rear and are arranged in rows and grouped according to denomination and ethnicity, including English, German, Slavic, potentially Ukrainian and Danish. Most graves are surrounded by a concrete or rendered brick border, one site featuring decorative corner elements. Also noted were remains of what appears to be a former elaborate timber grave surround. Grave markers are predominantly desk mounted tablets, but there are also two stone crosses. Some sites are marked with a rectangular embossed metal plate, stating the name and presumably the date of death.
