Canberra's public cemeteries

Canberra's public cemeteries are administered by the ACT Public Cemeteries Authority, an independent, self-funded statutory authority, which reports to the ACT Government through the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services. The cemeteries are planned and managed to meet as many of the communities needs as possible.
