Cairns Memorial Gardens

Our Memorial Gardens have been Cairns’ best kept secret for many years. We often hear from individuals how amazed they are at the tranquil and peaceful setting they find here. Our aim has always been to create a dignified and picturesque surrounding where families can come to pay respect to the memory of their loved ones.

If you’ve never considered the possibility of a garden memorial before, then we encourage you and your family to visit our gardens. If you would like a thorough walk-through with our memorial garden’s representative, please do not hesitate to contact our office to book an appointment.

If you would like any further information, please contact us during office hours to discuss your needs. We will be happy to spend time with you.

Options For You

All of our memorials, (excluding the Granite Book of Remembrance), are available for full, partial or no ashes at all interments.

We have gardens to cater for families as well as individuals. We also have a scatter garden for families who wish to scatter their loved one’s ashes instead of interring them or keeping them at home.

Niche Walls

Most people are familiar with this type of memorial. Traditionally, niche walls were the accepted way to create a memorial for their loved one’s ashes, particularly if the thought of a garden memorial held no appeal.

Our gardens host two different walls, creating a simple and easy to access memorial. Single and double sites are available.

For further information, please contact our office during business hours.

Memorial Gardens

Our beautiful memorial gardens cover a large area and can be divided up into 2 different types.

Established Gardens

We have many large garden beds, such as ‘Lilly Pilly Lane’ and ‘Peaceful Cove’, to choose from.

This is the simplest style of garden memorial, as the plaques are simply placed around the edges of the established gardens, with the option of interring ashes directly underneath the plaque.

We also have a Garden Border option on selected gardens, where the plaque is placed on the concrete edging itself, with the option of interring ashes in the grass in front of it.

Family Gardens

Family garden memorials are designed for two people though are large enough to include other family members if required.

  • Family Edge garden memorials are individual spaces around a large, central garden with space to add your own personal touches.
  • Individual Family gardens provide the opportunity to design your own garden, including plant choices. Create a living memorial for your loved ones. (No longer available – please contact office during business hours for more information)

Scatter Garden

Scattering the ashes of a loved one, is one way for families to say goodbye. It is an expression of their love that they are willing to ‘release to the four winds’. For this purpose, our ‘Birds Nest Scatter Garden’ can be the appropriate place to do so. Hidden away beside our central ‘lake,’ it is a calming location for families to gather and be involved in such an intimate act of love.

Granite Book of Remembrance

Our Granite Book of Remembrance is our most simple and affordable type of memorial.

You’ll find our granite book right situated on the west side of our chapel.

Intended as a ‘plaque only’ memorial, the Granite Book of Remembrance is particularly suitable if the ashes of your loved one has been scattered or are located elsewhere but still want somewhere to pay respects to locally.
