A bushland burial is an informal, natural and non-traditional form of burial or placement of cremated remains. The landscape remains basically undisturbed as burials are integrated into native bushland, allowing the natural landscape to play a part in the grieving process. Currently our bushland burial options are only available at our Kingston Cemetery, offering a natural and environmentally sustainable option.
A plaque is placed on the commemorative wall, located at the bushland burial site entrance. The grave is marked with a bush stone/rock with the name inscribed onto it. A tree/shrub can also be planted at the head of the burial site. Burial monumental works are not permitted at this site.
Coffins in our Bushland Burial Section need to be solid, untreated and unpainted timber. To reduce the environmental impact we do not allow chipboard, fibreboard or any other material that involves pulps, glues or chemicals in production. The internal coffin upholstery is unbleached calico and the handles are rope. This ensures a fully biodegradable coffin with no environmental impact.
