Lower Coomera Cemetery
Gold Coast City, Queensland, Australia

Dreamworld Parkway, Coomera

Submitted by Judy Dickson, Aug 28, 2006, last edited Sep 26, 2006 [judy_dickson@brisnet.org.au]. Total records = 159.

If you are coming from Brisbane, take Exit 54 (Dreamworld Exit) from the Pacific Motorway. Go through the roundabout following the sign to Upper Coomera. You will see the cemetery on the right as you exit the roundabout. You will not be able to turn at this point because of the double centre line. Proceed through the next roundabout, returning to the cemetery entrance. Take care, as cars behind you will not be able to see the entrance.

When I visited this cemetery it was in a well presented and well maintained condition. The cemetery has a mixture of monuments and lawn burials as well as a columbarium wall. Ash interments in the columbarium wall are indicated by (Col). I recorded all visible headstones. A small number of inscriptions were worn away totally or partially. Some older graves had missing headstones.

The responsible Council is the Gold Coast City Council. For further information on the cemetery or burials you can contact them by phone from within Australia: 07 55816640 or from Overseas: +61 7 55816640.

I visited and transcribed this cemetery in Aug 2006, which includes all existing and legible stones and markers.
