Description

Fawkner Memorial Park spans over 113 hectares

Established in 1906 and located in Melbourne’s north, Fawkner Memorial Park features extensive grounds, waterways and ornamental gardens, providing a range of settings for the burial and memorialisation of your loved ones.

The cemetery, designed by renowned landscape architect Charles Heath, is intersected by Merlynston and Campbellfield Creeks, and is serviced by the Upfield train line. The Fawkner Memorial Park Tea Rooms offer refreshments for visitors, and the cemetery's wide, shady boulevards provide a peaceful landscape for remembrance and reflection.

With a crematorium, chapels and function facilities, Fawkner Memorial Park plays an important role in the communities it serves.

This much-beloved cemetery was the first in Australia to introduce grand public mausolea, and is home to the Holy Family Mausoleum and Holy Angels Mausoleum.
