For many families scattering ashes is not only a symbolic moment, but it is pivotal to dealing with the loss of a loved one. What you do with the ashes of a loved one is a very personal choice. Ashes can be memorialised in our beautiful gardens, kept at home in an urn, split between family members, scattered – or any combination of these options. Whilst Centennial Park does not offer a place to scatter ashes within our Park, we are here to provide information and support for you and your families.
There are many considerations when it comes to scattering ashes that go beyond just choosing a location. Once ashes have been scattered they are irretrievable, so it is important that your family are aware of your preference to do so. We have sourced a variety of products including beautifully designed scatter tubes and 100% biodegradable urns that allow families to scatter ashes in a respectful and memorable way.
Made using 100% biodegradable materials, the Bios Urn is a respectful way to consider the environment while remembering and honouring a loved one. Built with a special capsule that meets the needs of any type of tree, it’s the perfect medium to allow for the proper growth of a tree or plant when planted with the ashes of your loved one.
Beautifully handcrafted and 100% biodegradable these environmentally friendly urns offer you and your family a variety of sophisticated options for both land and sea farewells. All urns are handmade using raw materials of plant or mineral origin.
