About Virgo Funerals


Virgo Funerals was established in 1939 to provide the South Burnett with a dignified, professional funeral service.

We cover all parts of the South Burnett - Blackbutt, Yarraman, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai, Proston, Murgon and Goomeri - and our decades of experience have made us very familiar with the needs of our customers.

In December 2009 - after four years of planning and development - we opened our new South Burnett Crematorium at 24 Pioneer Avenue in Kingaroy opposite Taabinga Cemetery and relocated Virgo Funerals there.

This South Burnett Crematorium is the only accredited facility of its kind in the South Burnett. It incorporates a state-of-the-art crematorium; a spacious, modern chapel equipped with a full audio-visual system; private viewing rooms; display areas and modern offices - all in tastefully landscaped grounds.

We're very proud that our company has been able to bring this much needed facility to the South Burnett, and equally proud to say that we're 100% Australian-owned.

We're also proud to be members of the Australian Funeral Directors Association - the nation's peak body for funeral homes. And you can obtain a copy of the AFDA's Code Of Ethics - which we always adhere to - by clicking here.
