South Hedland Cemetery

The South Hedland Cemetery is managed and maintained by the Town of Port Hedland, and is the only cemetery that allows new reservations and burials.

South Hedland Cemetery Masterplan

The South Hedland Cemetery Masterplan presents a long-term vision for the South Hedland Cemetery. It has been designed to plan for the improvement and future strategic expansion of the South Hedland Cemetery.

Considerable time has been put into creating the Masterplan. One of the main aims was to provide the community with a Cemetery that allows visitors to have a sense of peace and serenity. Upgrades have been thought out to be sensitive to the landscape and provide a reflection of the unique Pilbara landscape. Consideration has been given to the diverse religions and cultures in the community.

The South Hedland Masterplan is available here.
