yankalilla cemetery concept 400Yankallila is a small South Australian town on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula. The Peninsula is a favourite destination for some. Others, ahem, like it for the great roads. Anyway, Yankallila's cemetery is up for a refurbish designed by Geof Nairn. He also designed Adelaide's Centennial Park. The cemetery plan aims to address a number of issues at the site, including water drainage, old grave site conditions and public safety concerns about trees falling over and losing their limbs.

The plan includes water features that work with the area's natural shape that people can use for reflection; restored grave sites; new landscaping that can help stabilise the soil; and traffic management.
