About Preston Cemetery

Located approximately 10km north of Melbourne's CBD, Preston Cemetery opened in December 1864 and continues to serve the diverse communities of Melbourne's northern suburbs. Originally known as the Strathallan Cemetery, it is the burial place of many nineteenth century pioneers from the region.

In the 1920's the cemetery was expanded and re-named after the former City of Preston, since incorporated into the City of Darebin, though it is located in Bundoora. It has played an important role in the growth of those areas as the expansion of Melbourne saw the region move from a semi-rural to a suburban environment in a few short years.

Today Preston Cemetery covers an area of approximately 14 acres with over 24,000 graves and the largest mausoleum in the southern hemisphere.
