About the venue

On-site catering at Lilydale Memorial Park, provided by Celeste Catering, is available in the Candlebark room and the Hutton room.

Candlebark room

Named after its surrounding native trees, the Candlebark Room is the closest function venue for refreshments following a service at the Federation Chapel. Comfortably fitting 150 people standing, this multi-purpose venue can be used as a standalone memorial function or for refreshments following a service at Lilydale Memorial Park.

Hutton room

Nestled amongst early, pre-cemetery buildings, the smaller Hutton Room is an option for those wanting a more intimate function. This venue is attached to the original farm house from Lilydale Memorial Park’s agricultural roots. Styled with old-fashioned charm, the room’s capacity is a compact 40 people.
