At Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park you will find a range of memorials in a contemporary Australian cemetery setting which features mostly native plant species. Memorial options include:
The Tree of Life
Hand carved from Donnybrook stone, the Tree of Life supports a number of bronze leaves each of which provides a heartfelt way in which to commemorate a loved one.
Memorial gardens are located throughout Pinnaroo. In keeping with the natural bushland theme of the park, all gardens feature native and bushland style plantings.
A native tree creates a unique living memorial for an individual or a group of up to four. In keeping with the environment, trees are selected from native species ranging from Grass Trees to large Tuart or Jarrah Trees.
Vista Memorials at Pinnaroo are offered on bridges located throughout the park and on the Sir Thomas Meagher Lake Boardwalk. They offer a larger plaque size and the serene backdrop of flowing water.
There are many more memorial options to consider. The entire range of memorials available at Pinnaroo are available by downloading the Memorials - Celebrating Lives Lived information guide.
Memorials selection appointments are complimentary and involve a short visit to the cemetery grounds with one of our staff members who will assist in locating a preferred memorial and will then guide you through finalising the inscription (i.e. wording) for the plaque. Prior to the appointment, many families have found visiting the cemetery or memorial park and having a wander through the grounds to be beneficial, as is having read the Memorials - Celebrating Lives Lived selection guide. By doing this you will be able to advise our staff of your preferences. Please contact our offices to arrange a time for a selection appointment. We recommend allowing approximately one hour for your appointment. Most families prefer to send several family members to their selection appointment and we welcome this.
Please contact Client Services on 1300 793 109 for more information, to make an appointment, or if you prefer to have any of these publications mailed to you.
Flower and Ornament Policy
The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board is committed to maintaining its cemeteries and memorial gardens to a high standard.
Following an extensive community consultation exercise, a revised policy was developed in 2011.
We thank our visitors for observing the conditions described in the policy.
Whilst artificial tributes do have an environmental impact and the placement of fresh tributes is preferred, the Board recognises that many families prefer artificial tributes and, as such, their placement is respected as being an integral part of the grieving process.
When placing new tributes, we would ask that plastic wrapping be removed and withered/weathered tributes be placed within one of the rubbish bins located throughout the cemeteries.
The Flower and Ornament Policy can be downloaded here. Alternatively, please contact Client Services on 1300 793 109 should you prefer to have a copy mailed to you.
