Gulwarra Heights Memorial Park is Warragul's new Cemetery,
providing for the future needs of the West Gippsland community.

The 57 acre site, known as Gulwarra Heights Memorial Park, was secured by the State Government on June 25, 1987 for $94,000 and was officially opened by then Minister of Health, Caroline Hogg in 1990.
Initial work to construct road works, drainage and car parks at Gulwarra Heights was completed in October 1994.
A plaque acknowledging the Baw Baw Shire contribution of $22,000 was unveiled by then Mayor, Joy Ryrie.

The first burial at Gulwarra Heights Memorial Park took place on May 15, 1996.
This burial was of well known local butcher Robert Radford, who had pre-purchased the first available plot.

The ornate steel gates to the Cemetery were gifted by the Springvale Crematorium in 1996.
They were modified to fit the main entrance and opened by then Community Services Minister Denis Napthine.
Stage 1 building construction of the Chapel, Office and Reception Centre was undertaken in 2000.
This work was led and supervised by local Rotarian and Master Builder, the late Graeme James Snape,
with the assistance of the members of the Trust.
This phase of the Gulwarra Heights Memorial Park project also relied on the strong financial
and voluntary in-kind support from local businesses.

     

Stage 2 developement of Gulwarra Heights was started in 2018.
The planning and design work for road infrastructure and additional rows are due to be finalised late in 2019.
