Chowey Cemetery is located in bushland featuring mature native vegetation on a rectangular 4.5 hectare block bordering onto the Gooroolba-Biggenden Road in the north and the Chowey Cemetery Road in the west. The gravesites are located to the south west in a small cleared triangular grassy area on levelled terrain. The cemetery is surrounded by a timber post and barbed-wire fence and access is via a large metal gate with wrought iron decoration. There are only a few marked graves which are arranged in rows and located to the east of the clearing. Most sites are surrounded by a concrete border and covered by a concrete plate. One burial features a wrought iron fence, while another site is marked by a simple timber cross.

There is a variety of different headstones, some featuring granite tablets. Located near the entrance gate, separated from the other graves is a rectangular metal frame structure.
