(NM 5494 3983) MacQuarie's Mausoleum, Gruline: This mausoleum, which stands about 0.6 km NW of Old Gruline House, is a plain gable-ended structure of sandstone ashlar having buttressed side-walls and a stone-slabbed roof. Two marble panels seal the entrance-doorways in the gable-walls, the one at the N end bearing a contemporary inscription which commemorates Major-General Lachlan MacQuarie of Jarvisfield, who died in 1824, and his second wife Elizabeth, daughter of John Campbell of Airds, who died in 1835. The panel at the S end, which has recently been restored, contains an inscription recording MacQuarie's achievements as Governor of New South Wales.

RCAHMS 1980, visited 1973.
