The Byrnestown General Cemetery established in 1880 is located adjacent to the Gayndah-Mount Perry Road on Cemetery Rd, just west of Murtons Rd in the north east of the former settlement on approximately two hectares of cleared bushland on a ridge, bordering onto the road in the north. The slightly sloped site features native grasses and some trees and shrubs and is surrounded by wire fences. Access is through a wide metal gate with a wrought iron feature suspended between two timber posts with square profile featuring decorative tops. The location of the cemetery on a ridgeline provides an excellent view over the site of the former communey.


The Byrnestown Commune and Cemetery are listed on the North Burnett Regional Council's local heritage register.
