Renovations to the Florist Space at Springvale Botanical Cemetery

09 May 2024

The Springvale Botanical Cemetery florist will be undergoing renovations from Wednesday 15 May. These works will upgrade our florist shop and allow us to provide a better service to our valued community. We expect that the works will continue until the end of June.

While renovations are underway, we will make some temporary changes to the way we assist you. This includes moving the florist service to a temporary, ‘pop-up’ store inside the café area. You will still be able to purchase flowers and other items from the pop-up florist store.

Our opening hours will not change during this time, unless otherwise advised.

We will do our best to make this change with the least possible inconvenience to our community. However, you may notice increased noise during your visit. If you would prefer a quieter space while you dine in at our café, our deck area will still be available to you. There will also be clear signage on site, and our team is always here to help you.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while these works continue. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our florist team on 0437 330 672, or email
