Maintenance News

Mausoleum Panels Woden March & April 2020 We are conducting maintenance on all memorial panels on the outdoor crypts at the Christ the Redeemer Mausoleum. The work will take approximately six weeks and may impact visitors to the mausoleum. Access may be restricted or limited at various times. Please observe all signage, and respect any posted warnings or verbal directions from staff which may be issued during this period.
New Concrete Beams Gungahlin March & April 2020 Two new concrete beams are currently being installed in Portion 18 to increase burial capacity in that lawn section. Visitors will not be impacted by the work but are asked to please avoid entering the taped off area while the installation is in progress.

Canberra's Public Cemeteries

Canberra's public cemeteries are administered by the ACT Public Cemeteries 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 as many of the communities needs as possible.
