HOW WE HELP FAMILIES
Create Meaningful, Authentic Funeral Experiences
There are so many ways to pay tribute to someone you've lost. At Picaluna, we give you the freedom, guidance and time you need to explore the different options, be it cremation, burial or memorials. Our experienced Funeral directors specialise in creating authentic end of life experiences, that meets your budget.
Any Location, with Unique Venues to Suit Your Needs
A funeral doesn’t have to follow a formula. We work with families to create personal farewells of all shapes and sizes – on the beach, in a garden, at home, at the golf club, at your local surf club, at your church or at the crematorium chapel - whatever venue feels right for your family.
Guidance and Support Every Step of the Way
We want to help you to say goodbye the right way.
Picaluna is a business that offers a better way for family and friends to say goodbye to the people they love, through funerals, memorials and authentic life celebrations.
Picaluna is the brainchild of four co-founders, not previously involved in the funeral industry and from different backgrounds, but driven by a common need to change the way funerals are done for the better. They each had poor experiences with funerals for family members in the past, and felt that there must be a better way to do this.
Their idea was to democratise the process of conducting a funeral, so that anyone could help their community through the process, to create more authentic, compassionate and affordable cremations and burials. Picaluna's unique funeral arranging software, enables anyone with a passion to help their communities with end of life needs. They work in partnership with families and suppliers to co-create meaningful cremations, burials, memorials, home vigils and ceremonies for their people.
And so Picaluna was launched in October 2016. We started with just four funeral celebrants, who trained to become Picaluna Funeral Directors. From those humble beginnings, Picaluna has grown to where we are today, helping families across the greater Sydney region, Blue Mountains, lower Southern Highlands, Central Coast and Newcastle.

Why we exist, what we do, and how we do it, are all underpinned
by values and behaviours we adhere to...
We communicate openly and honestly. We are committed to delivering genuine, caring funerals reflecting the person’s life, their family, friends and community. We are accountable for our actions, as we genuinely care about assisting people.
We are inclusive, not exclusive. We embrace you for who you are; welcoming and valuing the diversity of beliefs, age, sex, experience, heritage and culture. We accomplish greater things, together.
It may be a challenging time for families. We behave ethically. We are leaders, encouraging confidence it will be the best experience possible. We do as we say we will do.
We contribute to a healing experience, towards a healthy bereavement. We offer families, each other and ourselves empathy, love and compassion. We create a safe environment for a healing process to flourish and a rejuvenation to take place. An extra-ordinary experience with no regrets.
We ensure every funeral is affordable. We seek to understand every family’s situation, working with them to deliver a beneficial outcome, within their budget.
We are an open book. We are honest, clear and specific. Communicating in a kind, respectful manner.
By being clear and specific, the more beneficial we are. The truth will set us free…
Nothing changes, if nothing changes… We change the way funerals are done for the better. We inspire creativity, by listening and collaborating with positive energy. Every funeral is individual; collectively, we collaborate to create better experiences.
