St Clement's Retreat (Monastery)
St Clement’s at Galong became a home for the Redemptorists in 1917, when ‘Galong House’ and its surrounding 800 acres, the home of “Ticket of Leave” convict Ned Ryan, was left to them by his son, John Nagle Ryan M.L.A.
The cemetery lies about a kilometre to the east of Galong House (monastery) and is likely to date back to the 1830s. In 1987 the National Trust of Australia classified Galong Cemetery recognising its historical and cultural significance.
