Ballarat General Cemeteries
In collaboration with Ballarat Cemeteries and the Gatehouse Café, we invite you to a picnic taking place during Ballarat Heritage Month at the Ballarat New Cemetery. The 55 acre plot of land which makes up the cemetery remains a beautiful, if unappreciated landmark in Ballarat, with neatly kept lawns and over 2,500 roses to pay respects to its 130,000 residents.

There will be many events aimed to keep you entertained and educated in an attempt to demystify the death and burial process.

You will have the opportunity to relax with a picnic and enjoy live music performances, and partake in a treasure hunt and tombstone rubbing. You can peruse the small market, go on a horse drawn carriage ride, and enjoy a high tea at the Gatehouse Café.

Take part in various historical tours to learn about subjects such as the stories and past of the Ballarat New Cemetery, the World War I veterans who hailed from our city, the history of cremation in Victoria, and Ballarat’s rich Chinese heritage dating back over seven generations.

This is a not to be missed family friendly event aimed at remembering and celebrating the lives of those who came before us. We hope to see you there!
