COVID-19 Alert: For ongoing updates on travel and Covid-19 visit the government website Visit the Forbes Cemetery to find the final resting places of the infamous bushranger, Ben Hall, who was shot just west of Forbes 4 days before his 28th birthday, Kate Foster, (born Catherine Ada Kelly) - sister of Ned Kelly, also of the bushranging "fame" - who drowned in the Forbes lake in 1898 (aged 35 years), and Rebecca Shield - great grandniece of Capt. James Cook - who, unlike Ben and Kate, died at the ripe old age of 84 years and whom little is known, among others of note. Pick up an Historic Graveside Walk brochure from the Forbes Visitor Information Centre.
