In December 2019, the care, control and management of the Gnangara Aboriginal Cemetery was vested in the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board.
The Cemetery is intended to be a place where persons of Aboriginal descent and their families, including the wider Nyoongah community, can be buried. This cemetery has been created as a burial area within a natural bushland setting.
There are conditions associated with this cemetery. When arranging a funeral at the Gnangara Aboriginal Cemetery, approval for the burial must be obtained from the Nyoongah Community Aboriginal Corporation (NCAC).
Administrative functions for Gnangara Aboriginal Cemetery are managed via Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park and enquiries should be directed to Pinnaroo in the first instance. Pinnaroo can be contacted on 1300 793 109.
