What price eternal rest?
RESTING in peace can be expensive if you decide to purchase a $350,000 family vault in the Allambe Memorial Park at Nerang.
But the price hasn't bothered some Gold Coast families, with two of the three vaults in the park already snapped up before they were completed.
InvoCare regional manager David Adams said the vaults, which house six entombments, were created due to demand from Gold Coast residents.
“We listened to the Gold Coast community, and this is what they wanted,” Mr Adams said.
The vaults are situated on a hill in the park and have views of the hinterland.
“We have future plans to build a lake in the park, with the vaults overlooking that,” Mr Adams said.
Allambe Memorial Park's family services manager, Amandha Scott, said the vaults were a new concept for the Gold Coast.
“This is a completely unique opportunity and has never been done before on the Gold Coast,” Ms Scott said.
“Each of the vaults have polished granite floors, bronze doors and are fully lockable, with family members getting their own keys.
“There's even a chapel inside with an eternal light, powered by a solar panel.”
Families also have the option to personalise their vaults with vases, statues, plaques and photos. There are plans for more vaults.
