Dedications and Donations

Dedications

Wollongong Botanic Garden can provide a number of options for you to make a public dedication to an individual or family.

The most common type of dedications at the Garden are to remember loved ones.

We have the following options available:

A timber Westminster-style bench will be installed, including a small plaque with your selected name and the year of dedication.

Bench locations are chose at the discretion of the Botanic Garden Curator.

  • Guaranteed for: 10 years
  • Availability: year-round
  • Approximate delivery time: 6 to 8 weeks
  • Cost: $2,205.00 (inc. GST)

A timber picnic table will be installed on a grassed area in the Garden, including a small plaque with your selected name and the year of dedication.

Note that picnic tables are generally not stained, and wood colour may change as the table ages.

  • Guaranteed for: 10 years
  • Availability: year-round
  • Approximate delivery time: 6 to 8 weeks
  • Cost: $2,205.00 (inc. GST)

Each dedication is guaranteed for the period of time described above. In some cases, the dedication may stay in place beyond that time, but this isn’t guaranteed. During the dedication period, if the plaque or item your dedication is attached to is damaged, we’ll replace it at no cost to you.

All dedications must use our standard templates. For bench or table dedications, plaques are made of engraved stainless steel. The scattering of ashes or placement of personal items at dedication sites is not allowed.

The Botanic Garden does not offer dedication ceremonies, but we can provide advice if you’d like to organise your own ceremony.

Contact us to discuss arranging a dedication.
