A natural burial is a simple, natural and environmentally sensitive form of burial.

The GMCT offers a uniquely Australian burial experience which incorporates elements of sustainability, biodiversity and longevity.

Items that are introduced into our natural burial sites are made from natural resources and fully bio-degradable to preserve the environment. Instead of tombstones, memorial plaques are mounted on rocks that are sensitively placed amongst native vegetation, minimising the disturbance of existing root systems.

Natural burials are available at Lilydale Memorial Park and Healesville Cemetery.

Lilydale Memorial Park's Djeernongs Walk

Djeernongs Walk located at Lilydale Memorial Park, is the Aboriginal name meaning pathway or many footprints. Set amongst the rolling hills, this site provides expansive views of the Yarra Valley with scenes of early morning sunrise and afternoon sunsets.

Healesville Cemetery's Tharangilkbek

Tharangilkbek is fittingly named after the Aboriginal term for woody country in the sky or promenade for the blessed dead. This area resides in the picturesque site of Healesville Cemetery and boasts elegant views of Mount Riddell, Mount Monda and Mount St Leonard.
