Steeped in history, the State Heritage Listed West Terrace Cemetery provides a rare opportunity to establish an everlasting resting place. It is one of Australia’s oldest capital city cemeteries.

Whether your preference is for traditional burial or a cremation memorial, there is no better place to preserve your family history than the Wakefield Section. Set amid Adelaide’s picturesque parklands, this charming area provides plumbago hedges and plantings of rosemary, oleander and cypress pine to create a truly peaceful final resting place in the heart of Adelaide.


A range of traditional headstone and full monument burial options are complemented by a cremation memorial garden. Cremated remains can be interred beneath a small headstone, each nestled between the heady blooms of standard roses.

West Terrace Cemetery is open to the public every day of the year, with a variety of guided and self-guided walking tours available to the general public.
