  • Cemetery: Altona Memorial Park

Altona Memorial Park's new chapel complex and sculpture garden have been officially opened at a special community event.

GMCT hosted local cultural and religious leaders, community members and other guests on opening day, where they enjoyed a stunning performance by a dance group from Jyaia, a local Indian arts organisation.  

Attendees had an opportunity to tour the new facilities led by GMCT staff and also enjoyed Vietnamese street food, a soundscape artist, an exhibition of work by local quilters and Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging).

Contact us to make a booking at Altona Memorial Park or learn more about our new facilities.
