Chapels and Crematorium

Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium proudly provides three impressive, accommodating main chapels. Upon arrival at the well sign posted grounds, visitors can easily find their appropriate chapel with the information displayed on the large screen located at the entrance to the carpark.

All chapels are located within a close walk or accessible ramp to the crematorium car park, function centre and administration building.

Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, our main chapels have some wonderful features:

Magnolia Chapel boasts established magnolia trees, the deep burgundy and light pink variety with scented gardenias bordering the front of the chapel.

Palm Chapel has a varied group of palm trees including dwarf dates, sago palms and foxtail palms. Philodendrons, yellow and red hibiscus and begonias border the gardens.

Camellia Chapel has a variety of camellias, from white to a vibrant pink, all of which are in full bloom during the winter months and provide rich green foliage throughout the year.

Lotus Pavilion, an open air chapel at Macquarie Park offering an alternative setting for services. Set in landscaped gardens close to the soon-to-be opened Wallumatta Function Centre and within easy walk of the crematorium and administration building, the pavilion provides a private yet modern haven for services. The pavilion has seating capacity for 160 people, with additional space at its sides if required. It offers Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Sikh communities a place to carry out pre-cremation ceremonies, but is available to the wider community for services of their choice.

Rose Chapel provides a modern setting for small services. Located for immediate access to the crematorium, it has visual connection from its interior to the green surrounds through carefully placed picture windows. With a maximum seating capacity for 35 people, it is an ideal environment for private gatherings.

After many months of refurbishment, we were proud to re-dedicate the Ohel Chaim for burial services at the Macquarie Park Cemetery on Sunday, 16 December 2018.

Among the guests who took park in the ceremony were Dr Mendel Monk, President of the Sydney Chevra Kadisha, Dr John Hewson AM, Chair Northern Cemeteries and Rabonim representing many of Sydney’s Synagogues and institutions.

For 200 years the Sydney Chevra Kadisha has been supporting our community in its time of need. We are proud of the upgraded Ohel Chaim, and trust it will serve the community for many years to come. Kind Regards,

Dr Mendel Monk PRESIDENT

Always caring for the community in all its diversity
