About the project

First natural burial and ash interment cemetery in Australia, Itaoui Woodland Park is a place for Australians to rest in peace with peace of mind.
Ever thought of the environmental impact you make when you die?

Well research has shown that traditional burial sites are some of the most environmentally unsound land-use practices in contemporary society.
Things like embalming fluids and chemical coatings of caskets are all highly toxic to the surrounding grounds, not to mention the constant maintenance and water consumption used in the upkeep.

So, the Itaoui Woodland Park aims to turn the tables, and become the first natural burial and ash interment cemetery in Australia.

Stage one has already been approved and progress is being made on the 6 star rated development. Biodegradable casings for in ground and urn interments will be used to ensure a minimal environmental impact on the landscape. Traditional tombstones will be replaced by an innovative technology based memorial marking system so that the character of the site can be retained.

Open for all denominations, the Itaoui Woodland Park is a place for Australians to rest in peace with peace of mind.
