Events at Rookwood

With its rich history, beautiful grounds and striking architecture, Rookwood Cemetery offers a unique setting for a variety of events.

Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust (RGCRT) is passionate about sharing the historic Rookwood Cemetery with the community. We do this by hosting public events ranging from Commemorative Events, Art Events and workshops, and Open Days. 

With a number of venues and unique locations within the cemetery grounds, we also invite the community to use Rookwood for private events, such as memorial or commemorative fucntions. If you are interested in hosting an event at Rookwood Cemetery, please contact us.
