Bulla Cemetery

Bulla Cemetery is both a currently operational and a historically significant cemetery.

The land for the Bulla Cemetery was granted in 1864 with the earliest recorded burial being in 1867. The cemetery provides a good example of funeral customs dating back to the 19th century, and contains some significant graves including the graves of numerous locally prominent people. The well-defined formal layout of the cemetery, its collection of monuments and grave markers, and the outstanding plantings make the cemetery an excellent example of early burial customs and tastes.

The cemetery is bounded by mature Stone Pines (Pinus pinea) and Monterey Pines (Pinus radiata). Mature exotic and native trees also grow within the cemetery.

In recent years the cemetery has expanded and it now has a large area of land that is used for non-denominational interments. These graves are monumental, as the cemetery does not have a lawn section. A gazebo has also been built for the use of cemetery visitors.

Vehicular access to the cemetery is limited to funeral director vehicles, monumental masons and maintenance vehicles. Pedestrian access is provided to the cemetery from three separate entry points which are unlocked, allowing unrestricted visitor access to the cemtery. Car parking is available on Cemetery Lane on both the southern and eastern boundaries of the cemetery.
