The environmentally-conscious natural burial and cremation area is a first for the Lake Macquarie-Hunter region. Only a handful of Australian memorial gardens offer natural memorial options, and the next closest locations are in metropolitan Sydney and Lismore.
The Natural Memorial Reserve is located within a tranquil setting and is the perfect place be laid to rest for the environmentally-conscious.
There are no traditional headstones, but families can opt to have a natural rock with their loved one's details placed on a perimeter rock marking the boundaries of the Natural Reserve.
Beyond the mandatory requirements for a natural burial area, families can select the extend to which they lessen their environmental impact. Graves can be hand dug instead of machine dug.
