Possum Ridge Pet Memorial & Gardens

Pet Memorial & Gardens

At Possum Ridge our gardens and pet memorials are a peaceful haven to visit and remember your beloved pet.

For families who have chosen to have no ashes returned, our Pet Scatter Garden is a pleasant place for your pets ashes to be scattered. You can also choose to purchase a plaque to place on the Pet Memorial Board as a loving way to remember your pet.

Another option, is our Little John Memorial Garden. Here, you can bury your pet's ashes in the intimate surrounds with a beautiful and enduring bronze or granite plaque. Our gardens are available for you to visit with your family at any time you choose.

Perhaps your family would prefer to create a memorial in your own garden. We can assist, with products that are designed to be long lasting and beautiful.


"Our gardens are a peaceful haven to visit and remember your beloved pet."

Scatter Garden

There are many personal reasons for some families not desiring to keep their pets ashes at home. For some, the idea of returning their beloved pet to the earth has an appeal that can’t be ignored. Our peaceful, tropical Pet Memorial Garden has been designed as the perfect place for this purpose.

For any who choose to have their pet’s ashes scattered in our gardens, an opportunity will also be provided to purchase an outdoor plaque on our Pet Memorial Board as a lasting tribute to your pet.

Our gardens are fully accessible to you and your family anytime you wish to visit.

Memorial Gardens

At Possum Ridge, we are able to help families who wish to create a personalized memorial for their beloved pet. Our Little John Memorial Garden is designed for those who wish to inter their pet’s ashes in a peaceful location. This is especially helpful for those families whose circumstances don’t allow them the opportunity to do this at home.

Families are more than welcome to make an appointment with our friendly staff, to visit our gardens and discuss your requirements. You will be given the opportunity to choose a site, and decide on plaque options such as etched granite or bronze. A photo can also be added if you so desire.

Cairns Crematorium Memorial Gardens

Occasionally families have an existing memorial prearranged in the adjacent Cairns Crematorium Memorial Gardens, and would like the opportunity to have their pets ashes placed in the same location. This will need to be assessed on an individual basis, but is generally allowed.

Please contact the Crematorium staff to ask for advice and a quote.

Home Memorials

For those families who would like to create their own Memorial in their own gardens, we are also able to help. We have a range of beautiful, enduring plaques that will happily survive our harsh conditions in Far North Queensland. Etched granite, bronze, and our Claycraft urns are all tried and tested. Ceramic photos have long been praised for their durability in all weather.

Our standard ash containers are the same containers that are used in the adjoining Cairns Crematorium Memorial Gardens. The container’s ability to withstand being interred in the ground has already been proven for many years. If you are still concerned, then our Claycraft urns have a cavity especially designed for ash containers, and are very sturdy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
