About our Memorial Park

Our Continuing Care of our Memorial Park

We are proud of our contemporary Australian landscape and inspirational places for remembering.

The team at Bunurong Memorial Park work around the year to keep our grounds in pristine condition. The team consists of 10 outdoor employees, who cover horticulture, grave-digging and general maintenance.

Managing our gardens

At Bunurong Memorial Park we are dedicated to recycling and green technologies.

All our organic waste is recycled on-site and reused within the cemetery for garden bed preparation.

Recycle water tank facilities mean we can take full advantage of inclement weather.

Our water quality management plan with Melbourne Water includes gross pollution traps, which ensures that all run-offs into the bay are of excellent quality.

Potable water is only used in our amenities, facilities and cemetery taps.

Specialist employees

We have a close relationship with TAFE for in-house and external horticultural training, which ensures our horticulture employees are specialists.

Over the past 10 years six SMCT staff have received a total of eight awards including Outstanding Apprentice of the Year at their level, and the much coveted award of "Outstanding Student of the Year Holmesglen Parks and Gardens”.

Recreation

We are proud that our grounds are used extensively for community recreation. On any given day you may find walking and historical groups enjoying the environment.

Your responsibilities

All public cemetery land is crown land. This means that when you purchase a grave or memorial location you are not purchasing the land, but purchasing rights to inter on crown land.

It is you and your family’s responsibility to maintain the monument, headstone or plaque in perpetuity while the cemetery is responsible for maintaining the grounds.

Tenure on Cremation Memorials

All cremation memorials at Bunurong Memorial Park are purchased in perpetuity – for all time.
