The Murray Pines Cemetery is located adjacent to the southern corner of the Mildura Airport, some ten kilometres south-west of the city centre. The site, which is 24 hectares in area, has road frontages to Walnut Avenue, Nineteenth Street and Deakin Avenue, with its main entrance in Deakin Avenue.
The land was a bushland reserve and is subject to some limitations regarding the height of buildings and structures due to its proximity to the flight path of the north-south runway. It is also subject to restrictions imposed by the Department of Sustainability and Environment in relation to the management of Mallee trees, shrubs and pockets of native grassland.
In 1996, a Master Plan for the development of the cemetery was prepared, with the eastern half of the site seeing the construction of roads, car parks and irrigation systems. Burials commenced in 1998.
A 100-crypt mausoleum complex was completed in 2002 with encouragement from the local Italian community.
A new mausoleum, which houses 24 burial crypts, was constructed and opened in 2016 after demand was exhausted at the cemetery’s original, larger mausoleum.
