Changing the way funerals are done for the better

Picaluna is all about offering genuine, personal funerals, helping family, friends and the community to honour, mourn, celebrate, heal and rejuvenate.

A little about us

What’s in a name?

Our founders were inspired by some extraordinary images of a
cliff-top funeral for a still-born baby named Luna. It was heart-felt, community-lead and beautiful. Little Luna gave us our name. Grazie Luna.
(Italian: piccolina – little one)

Change

Picaluna is changing the way funerals are done for the better. It’s a change that needed to happen. More personal. 
More compassionate. And importantly, more affordable.

Community

Picaluna is about community. Walking alongside the bereaved in their most significant time of need, is at the heart of what we do. We’re there for you, guiding, listening and assisting with whatever is needed others to create the most meaningful
funeral possible.

Giving back

We believe in giving back.
Picaluna donates 5% of our service fee to a charity or cause of your choice.

We work with you

Picaluna’s team of funeral directors and funeral celebrants offer a wealth of experience and expertise to guide you in the creation of an appropriate funeral ceremony.  We pride ourselves on our personal approach – we’re all about providing you with the right information and appropriate support to
honour your person.  We work in our communities and alongside end-of-life
consultants, death doulas and palliative support workers to provide a continuity of care when you need it most.

Be inspired - do it your way

At Picaluna, we believe in creating truly unique and personalised farewells.  We work together with families to create life celebrations or personal funerals that take place in meaningful locations.  Whether this is your church, your backyard, a surf club, golf club or crematorium chapel.  Picaluna funeral directors take the time to guide you through the funeral planning; to help inspire you in creating a beautiful farewell for your special person. 

What does a funeral cost?

Picaluna does things a little differently;  we see our role is to assist and empower families to create meaningful and authentic farewells that are aligned with their values… and at an affordable price. We are completely transparent with our pricing, sourcing everything at cost and applying a 35% Service fee to the wholesale cost of the funeral.

We believe in giving back

We donate 5% of our service fee to your choice from one of our Picaluna Charity partners.

We have donated in excess of $95,000 to well over 160 different charities, since our launch in October, 2016.

Whether it’s a cremation you’re after, or a burial, we’re here to help you farewell your loved one in a truly beautiful way, with our support and guidance at every step. Cremation cost starts from $2,327, with a Burial cost starting from $4,150
