"During the last 3 years of the Second World War 1945-45, the Atherton tablelands area served as a major base and training area for Australian Troops involved in action in New Guinea, Bougainville and the later landings at Aitape - Wewak, Tarakan, Labuan and Balikpapan. Australia's 6th, 7th and 9th Divisions were based in the Atherton region, and from here the Air Force struck at the Japanese pressing down from the north and north-west. Many of the servicemen buried at this site died in local military hospitals from war-realted wounds, accident or illness.
The Atherton War Cemetery contains 164 burials, comprising 151 Australian Army, 12 RAAF and 1 YMCA Member.
