The principal cemetery for Canberra is extensively landscaped and a large lake and many bird species help create a tranquil and peaceful environment.
Opened in 1979, the cemetery contains a large lake set in a mature landscape. Separate attractive areas are provided for Lawn and Headstone burials, and placement of Ashes.
In addition to lawn, family estates, monumental, children's and baby's areas, there are special areas set aside for Jewish, Islamic, Orthodox, Aboriginal and Ex-Service burials.
Two areas are provided for the interment of Ashes. One area allows the placement of
Ashes in the ground behind an attractive granite beam. The other is an impressive structure
that allows the placing of a unique coloured plaque on a granite wall. The placing of the
Ashes is in either a vandal proof underground vault or in an attractive garden bed.
Ashes can also be scattered in shrub beds within the Cemetery.
