A.A.Co. "Warrahs" worker graves.

On the property "Nara", part of the 1967 subdivision, now owned by John Benham, lies the graves of two workers of the A.A.Co.'s Warrah estate. They are the graves of Doughy Roberts and Jim Davis. Doughy was the companies first resident employee, and Davis was the last Warrah shepherd.

The graves used to have a nice wooden fence around them, with wooden cross headstones. It's all fallen to bits with time and the elements, and John Benham has taken what remains of the crosses and put them in dry storage and marked the site.

It is hoped that a new fence can be erected where the old one used to be, and new headstones placed on the graves.
