Changing the way funerals are done for the better

Are you searching for non-traditional funeral homes in Brisbane? 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)


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.


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 to create the most meaningful
funeral possible.

Giving back

We believe in giving back.

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. Being a different style of Brisbane funeral home, 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’re a different kind of funeral home in Brisbane. 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 to traditional Brisbane funeral homes; 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 profit to your choice from one of our Picaluna Charity partners.

We have donated in excess of $105,000 to well over 160 different charities, since our launch in October, 2016.

Cremation and Burial done beautifully better

Whether it’s cremation services in Brisbane 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 $2,342, with a Burial cost starting from $7,294

Funeral live streaming

The livestreaming of a funeral ceremony brings family and friends together no matter how far apart they are. Picaluna provides sophisticated multi-camera options for livestreaming and webcasting. Whether in a traditional funeral home in Brisbane backdrop or a backyard, it can take place in almost any location. A high-quality recording is also available for download following the ceremony as a special reminder of the day.

Shelly was an absolute angel in disguise! From the get go right through to the end of farewelling our loved one. She is one of the most gentle and caring people I have ever met and really went above and beyond in comforting us throughout the whole daunting journey. Heartfelt thank you Shelly!

Rachel Bracken was amazing. She went above & beyond with so much heartfelt sympathy & empathy for the family for my Mother in laws' funeral. Nothing was any trouble for her. She is so easy to talk to, it feels like we had known her for ages. I would thoroughly recommend her for any event.

I could not have asked for anyone better than Alexandra Kirk and Picaluna to arrange the Farewell to my wife. I had great hopes of the setting and the format of the ceremony, both of which were challenging. My hopes were realised and expectations exceeded. We live streamed the event for the benefit of family and friends in the UK. This was very successful. Alexandra brought a sympathetic, understanding and comforting personality to her role as celebrant which was appreciated by all in attendance. My words are insufficient to express my gratitude. Thank you Alexandra.

Melissa and Picaluna arranged the cremation of our loved one and guided us through the process with great care, patience and compassion, especially as we had no experience beforehand. We are very grateful for their help and support.
