Watsons Bay Memorial Gardens
With views over the harbour and the Watsons Bay heritage precinct, the Gardens offer a picturesque and peaceful place to honour those laid to rest.
Visiting the Gardens
The Gardens of Remembrance are situated at the northern end of our parklike grounds, and can be found by following the signposted path leading down from the St Peter's heritage church-building. The Gardens are open all year during daylight hours, with free parking available on-site.
The Gardens are open to all — no religious affiliation is required visit or for a loved one to be interred in the gardens. Yet for those who need a listening ear and someone to talk or pray with, ministers are available to spend some time with you.
Preparing to Lay Loved Ones to Rest
The Gardens first opened in 1963 and have been progressively added to as part of their long-term maintenance. The niche-walls frame five discreet gardens, with several other recesses to suit a variety of needs and preferences. The Gardens are maintained in superb condition throughout the year.
Niches are available to inter ashes or simply to provide a plaque in memorial. Many people often choose to reserve a niche for themselves and/or other family members ahead of time: these are reserved via prepayment. Plaques are acquired separately when they are needed, and can be configured in consultation with our office administrator to encompass adjacent family lots.
Our ministry team offers a simple and dignified interment service on request.
