Wollongong Memorial Gardens is a service of Wollongong City Council. We've been operating since 1959.
Our caring and experienced staff are available to help you any time, whether you're planning for the future, dealing with a recent death, or remembering loved ones. We take the time to understand your wishes, and support you to create a personal and lasting tribute.
"Thanks and gratitude for the help offered to us at a time of profound sadness."
- Wolllongong Memorial Gardens customer
We take pride in serving and supporting people of all cultures, backgrounds and abilities.
Because we're publicly-owned, you can rest assured that your memorial or burial site will be permanent, and will continue to be cared for by our dedicated team for many generations to come. This is not always the case with commercial sites, which are often only guaranteed for a limited number of years.
