The cemetery has also been known as Balmoral Cemetery, Morningside Cemetery and Kangaroo Point Cemetery.
Land for the Bulimba cemetery was originally surveyed in 1864. In 1869, 55 acres were gazetted for the Kangaroo Point cemetery. The cemetery is on the corner of Wynnum and Bennetts Roads in the suburb of Morningside. The cemetery was opened in 1874 with the first burial in that same year. In 1891 the cemetery reserve was reduced to approximately 15 acres to allow more recreational space in Balmoral Park.

Many old graves and headstones exist in reasonable repair. If you visit the footing can be unsafe in places due to the slope and unevenness of the ground.
