About This Project

The Central Queensland township of Calliope is part of the historically rich Gladstone area. The oldest graves in the existing Calliope Cemetery date back to 1884. While cemeteries tend not to be pleasant subject, they are an essential part of every community and by making the surroundings as beautiful as possible it can brighten the often sombre occasions for visiting them. Continuing Boyds Bay Landscaping’s long, successful working relationship with Gladstone Regional Council we were more than happy to assist and bring the exceptional level of quality and detail to this project that this client has come to expect.

Design changes and changes to the scope of works required quick thinking and flexibility from our project manager and the rest of the onsite crew but in the end it proved no obstacle for the completion of this immaculate site.
