Mother's Day

Mother's Day 2023

You and your family are warmly welcome to join us for a special celebration of motherhood as we acknowledge Mother’s Day this year. We believe that it's important to recognise and honour the invaluable contributions of mothers and mother figures in our community, and we have planned a variety of events and experiences at Bunurong Memorial Park and Springvale Botanical Cemetery to help you commemorate your loved ones. Whether you're looking for a quiet moment of reflection, a fun and engaging family activity, or a way to connect with others in your community, you can choose something that caters to you and your family's personal needs and preferences.

As spaces are limited, we encourage you to register today to secure your spot for the events:

  • Mother's Day remembrance service
  • Reflection workshops: Rock painting, Music reflections and Art Expressions
  • Managing without Mum: How to get through Mother's Day
  • Miscarriage Awareness event
  • CCW sessions: Cuppa Connections, Yoga, Qigong, Mindfulness

Additionally, we understand that not everyone may be able to attend these events in-person. To ensure that everyone can participate and pay tribute, we have a digital tribute memorial that will allow you to leave a special message for the amazing mothers in your life. We hope that this digital option will provide an opportunity for those who are unable to attend the events to still feel connected to our community and to the celebration of motherhood.

We understand that everyone has a unique and often special relationship with their mothers and mother figures. We strive to create a safe and welcoming space for our community to come together as we remember and celebrate motherhood and the women who have made such a difference in our lives.

Visiting our sites over the Mother's Day weekend

We welcome all of our community to visit any of our cemeteries or memorial parks over the Mother's Day weekend.

If you would like to visit a loved one at one of our sites on either Saturday 13 or Sunday 14 May, please note the important visiting information below.

Flowers for all occasions

Our florist team is here to support you with beautiful arrangements for occasions such as Mother's Day.

You can buy Mother's Day flowers from our florist stores in person. Alternatively, you can order them online to collect at your preferred cemetery location.

We also understand that you can't always visit the memorial site of your loved one. Our florist team can deliver any arrangement ordered before Wednesday 10 May to the grave or memorial site of a loved one over the Mother's Day weekend.
