Moonie Cemetery entrance revitalised

The entrance to the Moonie Cemetery has been revitalised with a beautiful new gate and columbarium pillars as part of a recent project to enhance the space in the community.

Works to enhance the local cemetery was funded under Western Downs Regional Council’s Capital Works program and delivered in partnership with the local community.

Spokesperson for Recreational Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said community input played a major part in creating the inviting entrance.

“The unique gate design was inspired by the Moonie community, allowing us to add a personal touch to a space that holds a special place in the hearts of many Western Downs residents,” Cr Tillman said.

“In addition to the new gate, two columbarium walls were also constructed, now offering ashes interments as another option when laying loved ones to rest.

“Our community members are our loudest advocates for what’s great about our region, and it’s fantastic to see such a beautiful final product which will make the cemetery a more welcoming place to visit and reflect.

“Projects like these are incredibly important in supporting our communities and ensuring these essential spaces are cared for now, and into the future.”
