Behind the Scenes Tours

Curious about the inner workings of South Australia’s pre-eminent cemetery? Discover the beauty and history of Centennial Park, learn about what we do, and the end-of-life choices available to you.

We invite you to be a part of our popular Behind The Scenes tours. Join us for a relaxed, but highly informative tour of our grounds, buildings, and spectacular gardens, including the crematorium (optional) ending at Wildflowers Café, where you can enjoy a delicious coffee overlooking our stunning gardens.

Fantastic, informative, session, absolutely amazed with the guides depth of knowledge, ability to interact. The grounds are absolutely amazing, the layout the themes. The interweaving of themes the peaceful ambience yet living. We stayed on after the tour and took in the military area and gardens plus other areas. We came back Sunday to take a closer look at the SALA exhibits and noticed other items that interested us. A truly magnificent experience with the most amazing ideas and landscapes. Would love to see it being used more often as a living space as well as a resting place.”

Accompanied by our friendly team, tours commence in the forecourt of the Jubilee Complex, with easy parking close by, before touring through our beautiful service spaces and peaceful gardens on the way to the crematorium. A motorised buggy is provided for the group’s comfort.

Our public tours are held on the last Saturday of every month, and you must register to attend.

Numbers are limited to 10 per session, this ensures your questions can be answered and we can tour the Park in comfort and safety.

For community groups and organisations, we can cater a tour to your specific needs or questions.

Whether you’re considering arrangements for a family member, looking to pre-plan for your own end-of-life wishes, or simply have an interest in how we provide dignified care for the departed and their loved ones, we encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity, because the important things in life are worth knowing.

“The Behind the Scenes Tour was excellent and Centennial Park was more beautiful than a Botanical Garden. Our tour guides were absolutely delightful, very knowledgeable and accommodating to our many questions. The dignity and respect which families and departed loved ones receive from all Centennial Park Staff was strongly evident and a credit to all those who are employed there. An air of calm and peaceful beauty prevailed throughout this highly recommended tour. Thank you very much.” – Barb
