About the venue

Located adjacent to what is now Fawkner railway station on the Upfield line, the Fawkner Tearooms were established to take advantage of this new way of connecting the new cemetery to central Melbourne.

Behind the tearooms' historic facade, visitors to Fawkner Memorial Park can take time out for refreshments. Tea, coffee and light lunches are served and takeaway items are available from the kiosk area.

Visitors to the memorial park can also purchase fresh flowers. for opening hours.

Equipped with a small library, the tearooms are a perfect, peaceful spot for friends and families to catch up and enjoy a Devonshire tea, or a refreshing cool drink or ice-cream on a summer’s day.

The tearooms are ideal for post-funeral functions, anniversaries, 40-day services, and a range of dietary requirements, cultural and religious observances.
