Ballarat Cemeteries

Rich in history, Ballarat General Cemeteries is intimately linked with pivotal moments in Australia’s past.

Comprising the Old Ballarat Cemetery, New Ballarat Cemetery and Crematorium, we reflect not only life’s progress, but also that of the community and society around us.

Opened in June 1867 the New Ballarat Cemetery is one of only 2 Botanical Cemeteries in Victoria, covering 55ha that include 63,000sqm of lawns, over 6500 trees and roses and peaceful open parkland. It is a memorial landscape esteemed for its tranquility with more than 78,000 burials recorded in the grounds, serving the needs of Ballarat and the surrounding region.

The Ballarat General Cemeteries Trust is a self-funding not for profit organisation established under the Cemeteries & Crematoria Act 2003. We currently operate two cemetery sites and perform over 700 cremations and 300 burials per year

Our mission is:

Remembering the past,

Caring for the present,

Planning for the future.
