About Gympie Funerals

Gympie Funerals was established in 1931 to provide Gympie and the Cooloola region of Queensland with a dignified, professional funeral service.

We cover all parts of the Gympie area including Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay, the Mary Valley, Gunalda, Kilkivan, Goomeri and of course Gympie itself. We also operate the Cooloola Coast Crematorium and the Lake View Memorial Gardens. In addition, we can arrange repatriation to and from other countries or regions, if required.

Our decades of experience have made us very familiar with the needs of our customers; we’re very proud that our company has been able to bring these wonderful facilities to our region.

What Our Clients Say

June and family

I was completely impressed and comforted by the overall professional and compassionate services. It helped to make things a little easier to bear.

Steve Gollchewski

Thank you for guiding me through the process of Mum’s Funeral with such care. You were all so professional yet thoughtful, doing such a wonderful job of helping us all say goodbye. Thank you for doing what you all do so well. Warm regards

Jodie Mason

I would like to say a formal “Thank You” to you especially and to your colleagues from Gympie Funerals for the very significant part you played in farewelling our mother, the late Florence Irene Grainger. I like to think if mum were able to tell us, she would say “That’s just the way I wanted everything to be”. Your willingness to fit in with our slightly unusual format was very much appreciated…… you already provide a facility and service which are excellent. Sincerely on behalf of the Grainger family…

Maureen Greenslade

Our whole family appreciates the warmth, concern and professionalism given to our family.

Audrey Goldsworthy

Just a note to thank you all so very sincerely for your exceptional kindness and service during our bereavement for Harry King. Coman, I could not fault one single word you said during the service, nor one single interaction. Though you did not know Harry, you absolutely captured his essence from conversations, and that is a wonderful skill. These are also the sentiments of the visiting family on the day. Paul, Brian and Jeff – like Coman, you too are exceptional, thoroughly professional, kind and compassionate gentlemen who made that difficult week as easy to deal with as it can be for the bereaved. The environment – the office, gardens, chapels, and ante-rooms – at Gympie Funerals is peaceful and so respectful in one’s time of sorrow. That lovely tranquility was symbolic for us, for what we wish for Harry on his afterlife journey. From a special place in our hearts, we thank you all so very much.

Robbie & Nev Donaldson, Greta & Ella

Our Thank You to you and your staff for arranging Mum’s farewell in such a short time. We will always be grateful to you for your organization and professionalism.
