To those that have kept the small town of Major's Creek ticking over all these years, I congratulate you! I also note from reading the forums below that there would appear to be a real community spirit which is rare this day and age. I am the son of Clement Lloyd Keyte, whom had passed away in recent years. My father and the rest of the earlier family were born and raised in Major's Creek - district. I was born in Cairns and now reside in Mackay, Queensland and don't have any real direct connection to the creek other than family heritage. I intend to visit on the coming Australia day week end for a get together that Mick Keyte and others have been organizing and look forward to seeing the old town once again.

Last Saturday saw a group of residents gather at the Majors Creek Cemetery for a working bee that included cleaning around trees, graves, and generally cleaning up. The work done is greatly appreciated and an honour to our early pioneers and residents over the years. Although I was unable to be present due to other commitments. Thank You All.

Photos can be seen on this website.

I will soon be visiting Major's Creek to attend the Folk Festival and anticipate a fun time will be had.  I was hoping that this website might have yielded a little more basic information on what facilities the town has (eg pub, shops, service station, public toilets etc?).

No matter - I'll discover all this in due course and will come prepared, assuming that no such facilities exist.

cheers!

I am after a list of WW1 diggers from Majors Creek.

 

 

 

 

Keep an eye on http://www.braidwoodrsl.com.au/, they are in the process of creating such a list.

Hello
Thanks for compiling the list of burials at MC cemetery. My great great great grandparents John and Mary Jackson are buried there in unmarked graves in the RC section. I have often thought how wonderful it would be to have an archeologist do a survey (underground mapping) and locate graves. I also wonder about the legalities of opening them for DNA recognition?

Creek until about 1975 when blow in shooters made trouble for everybody.
In 1995 I convinced my brother to make a trip back to the Creek with me in his 4WD and we revisited all the old haunts. It was certainly nostalgic.He passed away the following year. The Jokers grave says it all
Lots of good memories of the place and that's why I'm back again.

First visited Majors Creek in 1966 when everything in the town was 'old'. Used to go rabbit shooting in the creek gullies finding Cook's old Hydraulic ram plunking away 24/7, bits of mining equipment like tram wagons and track and the occasional deep pit you wouldn't want to fall into.
When I could drive I came down with my brother and we camped in Ken's property at Back Creek. Always visited Mick & Danica Milic and his neighbour Dushan & Maria and we could never leave without being a bit tipsy after double rounds of Slivovitz and taking home a couple of dozen eggs.
We kept coming back the The Creek until about 1975 when blow in shooters made trouble for everybody.
