Special vehicle access arrangements: As requested by members of the Greek community in Boroondara it is the intention of Cemetery Management to provide vehicle access to the cemetery on Saturday 3 March, 2018. We appreciate that this is a time of special significance to the Boroondara community.
Hot weather closures: In the interest of public safety, on extreme weather days or in the event of high fire danger the cemetery may be closed. Please contact the cemetery office on (03) 9853 7025 if you have any concerns or queries. There will be a recorded message if a change to opening hours or public access has occurred.
Working bees: The Friends of Boroondara Kew Cemetery arrange regular working bees at the cemetery. We invite anyone who is interested to join an enthusiastic team. The next working bee will be on Saturday 3 March 2018 from 10:00 am until around 3:00 pm if the weather is favourable. Volunteers are welcome to join for as little or long as they please.
All you need to bring is yourself, some gloves, a pair of secateurs and to wear sensible shoes. Tea and coffee will be provided but if you are planning to stay you should bring your own lunch.
Gate access on working bee Saturdays: On working bee Saturdays the gate for car access will be open at the main entrance to the cemetery at the corner of High Street and Parkhill Road.
Welcome to the Boroondara General Cemetery, commonly known as the Kew Cemetery. As one of the oldest cemeteries in Victoria there have been more than 80,000 burials.
Currently, garden crypts are available for burial, and niches for the interment of cremated remains. These are held in perpetuity. More information about memorialisation can be found by clicking here.
