Wollongong Memorial Gardens

Set on the gentle hills of Unanderra, Wollongong Memorial Gardens offers a tranquil and reflective setting to remember your loved ones.

Wollongong Memorial Gardens was established in 1959 by Wollongong City Council.  Our gardens have flourished from more than 60 years of care, with well-established gum trees, extensive rose gardens and memorial walls.

This site has two chapels ideal for private or community services, or you can hold an outdoor memorial service in our leafy gardens.

This location is also home to our administration office.
