In 1992 the then Premier of Victoria, Jeff Kennett, and his close political associate, Ron Walker, became aware of the fact that a memorial had not been established for the late Sir Robert Menzies. A Prime Minister’s Garden at Melbourne General Cemetery was subsequently established and the cremated remains of Sir Robert and Dame Pattie Menzies interred.
Additional monuments have been added over the years which commemorate Sir John Grey Gorton, the Hon. Harold Holt and Dame Zara Bate. James Scullin's grave is in another part of the cemetery (I seem to have missed photographing this grave, so here is a link where you can see it).
A decorative wall recognising all Australian Prime Ministers who have held office is located at the rear of the garden.
