"Centenary Memorial Gardens
with its open rolling hills and
manicured gardens is unlike older style cemeteries..."
Centenary Memorial Gardens can be found nestled amid the bushland and hills in the western suburbs 15km from the centre of Brisbane. Surrounded by parkland and bushland reserve, the 40 acre site is a peaceful respite from the everyday rush of the city. 100% Australian owned, Centenary Memorial Gardens is committed to providing personal and sensitive service to you, your family and friends as we honour the memory of those who have died.

Established in 2001 by three Queensland families long associated with funeral care, the cemetery and crematoria is located at 353 Wacol Station Road, Sumner. With four generations and over 320 years of combined experience, the founders brought a unique perspective to how a cemetery should be laid out. Long rows of monuments were a sight of the past. Now there are individual gardens, water features and most importantly, an emphasis on open park land spaces.  Centenary Memorial Gardens is the first cemetery to be established in the western suburbs of Brisbane since the historic Toowong Cemetery 230 years earlier and is the only crematorium.

Mature gum trees are a feature of the grounds that gently slope towards the creek and surrounding bush land. The unspoiled natural beauty of the site provides a tranquil setting for family members to sit on one of the many seats as they reflect on their memories of a loved one while at the same time watching the kangaroos grazing or just resting.

Beyond the graceful curving avenue of Poinciana trees, visitors will find the imposing main building. It’s here that all the facilities of the crematorium are housed. The Federation Chapel with its high gable roof and glass walls affords uninterrupted views over landscaped gardens and the surrounding bush land.  

Complimenting the chapel is the refreshments lounge that provides a peaceful setting following the funeral that allows family and friends to gather and continue to celebrate the life of their loved one. Wide verandas surround the public areas, providing shade and undercover access to other areas of the building.
