The passing of a loved one is an emotionally stressful time and choosing a venue is an important part of the final goodbye. At Centenary Memorial Gardens we have drawn on the vast experience of our founders to design and construct the Federation Chapel and Outdoor Chapel to accommodate all tastes and make the decision easier.

The Federation Chapel

Our Federation Chapel is the centre-piece of Centenary Memorial Gardens and takes in sweeping views across our landscaped grounds and out to the surrounding hills.

Our chapel seats up to 120 guests in air-conditioned comfort as required glass doors at the chapel’s side can be re-arranged to accommodate standing room for an additional 200 people.

Our Federation Chapel offers the latest Audio-Visual equipment and allows guests to play CDs or DVD presentations with loving images on our giant LED screens for everyone to enjoy.

Following your service, guests are invited to avail themselves in our Refreshment Lounge and Patio, which is a short stroll from the Federation Chapel and protected from the elements by an undercover walkway.

  • Ideal for: 120 – 200 Guests

The Garden Chapel

Nestled amidst the embrace of the Father’s Forest and the Forest of Angels, our Garden Chapel offers an intimate space for more minor memorial services. This serene location provides views of rolling hills and native bushland, with kangaroos and local wildlife adding to the natural beauty.

A sound system is provided within the Garden Chapel, ensuring your memorial service is heard clearly by your guests. You’ll also find ample shade to shield you from the elements during your gathering.

We ensure you’re prepared for any weather when you reserve the Garden Chapel. We also reserve the Federation Chapel in case of rain or unsuitable conditions, ensuring that your service proceeds seamlessly.

After the service, you and your guests can relax amidst the gardens or in our Refreshment Lounge, just a short stroll away. The Garden Chapel is a lovely setting to cherish memories and strengthen bonds in the tranquil surroundings of Centenary Memorial Gardens.

Providing Media Files to Centenary Memorial Gardens

Centenary Memorial Gardens features a dedicated audio-visual system in its Federation Chapel, complete with an assigned concierge to assist you on the day of your service.

Our Chapel can utilise USB’s, however, we prefer MP3 files for music and MP4 files for video uploaded through the SMASH portal. Click here for SMASH instructions.

We request that you upload the files at least 1 day in advance. This saves us from having to rely on physical media and gives us time to properly prepare for your service.

For all technical advice regarding your presentation and audio requirements, please call Centenary Memorial Gardens on 07 3271 1222.

Our Garden Chapel and graveside services utilise a mobile AV system
that will play through a phone, iPad, or USB.
