At approximately 12.14 hectares (30 acres), the Eaglehawk Remembrance Park is the third largest RPCV site in the Bendigo region.
Land for the Eaglehawk cemetery was gazetted in 1879, when the area was used for monumental burials. A Heritage Overlay applies to the historical monumental area, which can be accessed through the original entrance off Grenfell Avenue. The old Sexton's residence at the park was formerly located near these gates. The cottage was built in the 1870’sand was residence for six Sextons of the cemetery, before it was demolished in the 1970’s.
A few years ago, the names of the lawn sections at each Remembrance Park were re-named to honour local people of the region that have made a significant contribution to the area.
A comprehensive list of the old and new names can be found on our Fact Sheet No 4 here.
The following map reflects both the old naming system and the new named lawn areas:
