Macquarie Park Mausoleum

The Journey

Designed as a sanctuary, the mausoleum offers a sacred place of solitude for persons of faith to both reflect and mourn.

 

The journey into the Mausoleum haven is accompanied by gently cascading water in the surrounds, offering a considered change from public space to the sacred place of remembrance and worship.

 

The inner sanctum of the gardens an intimate environment of peace. The materials are warm, tactile and natural wherever possible.

 

The pavilion, a quiet haven in which to hold ceremonies, sits spanning the linear path leading to the fourteen Stations of the Cross. The XIV Station (Resurrection) is symbolically positioned directly behind the altar to provide hope for those in mourning.
