Canberra’s Public Cemeteries and Crematorium
Canberra’s public cemeteries and crematorium are administered by the Cemeteries and Crematoria Authority, an independent, self-funded statutory authority, which reports to the ACT Government through the Minister for City Services. The cemeteries are planned and managed to meet community needs.
The Gungahlin Cemetery was opened in 1979 and is extensively landscaped. A large lake and many bird species help create a tranquil and peaceful environment.
Hall Cemetery is a small rural cemetery, mainly for the long time residents of the Hall Region. It is divided into religious denominations.
The Woden Cemetery was opened in 1936. This formally planned cemetery features many stately mature trees and offers lawn and monumental burial sites in different religious and general areas.
