In a departure from the granite headstones and manicured grounds of the conventional cemetery, natural burials offer the community a unique and sustainable final resting place with minimal disturbance to the natural bushland environment.
The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board has established a natural burial area at Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park. With a natural burial, the body is returned to nature in a biodegradable coffin and materials made from natural fibres.
Natural burials at Pinnaroo are located in a small and secluded bushland pocket. Bordered by traditional burial locations and memorial gardens, this unique pocket of bushland will be progressively vegetated with natural plant species as plots are utilised.
