Safety and Environment
For environmental and safety reasons, we respectfully ask you not to leave glass, metal, open flames or perishable items. These include items that will deteriorate in weather, such as soft toys. Balloons are not permitted due to the Airport and flight path. These items will be removed by Cemetery staff.
Fresh or Dried Flowers are Preferred
We are proud of the natural landscape we have conserved and developed and respectfully request the placement of fresh or dried floral tributes at burial and memorial sites.
With our focus on environmental sustainability, artificial tributes present a significant issue, as they are not able to be recycled. Fresh floral tributes are preferred as they will biodegrade over time. It can be as simple as a freshly picked flower from home. Please place flowers within the plastic vases provided or, where appropriate, within the vases incorporated within memorials.
A Wrapping-Free Cemetery
Please remove wrapping and rubber bands from floral arrangements before they are placed in the vases. Wrappings present a significant litter issue and rubber bands may also affect the native wildlife. When visiting we ask for your assistance in removing withered or weathered floral tributes and placing them in the bins provided.
Respect for Neighboring Memorials
Please be aware of encroaching on the memorial or burial locations of neighbouring families. Limits are designed to allow families to honour their loved one while ensuring that other families do not feel impinged. Tributes that encroach on neighbouring burial or memorial positions, often cause distress to neighbouring families and will be removed.
Removal of Floral Tributes
As all floral tributes will wither and weather over time, at some point these will need to be removed as part of our routine maintenance. The grounds are maintained year-round to a standard that enables the entire community to visit a safe and tidy environment.
