Congratulations to the Moonambel Arts & History Group and the Pyrenees Shire (VIC), for their brilliant restoration in 2015 of their original Avenue of Honour.
Those from the local Moonambel community that made the supreme sacrifice during World War 1 are doubly honoured. In addition to their names engraved in the granite memorial, so too are the numbered trees planted to commemorate their individual service and loss.

    The Lismore Victoria community is researching its avenue of honour. It was planted in1918 as a memorial to those who had served in WW1, In most cases the particular tree representing a soldier was planted by a representative of that soldier’s family. The original planting was a mixture of eucalypts including a number of rather unusual and beautiful flowering varieties. The avenue is in a state of disrepair with the trees being pollarded in about 1936 and then larger trees such as sugar gums removed in the 1990’s. The trees which remain are still impressive. The community will acknowledge the site with a walk on Anzac Day and then work to build a permanent marker for the site. We are interested in any further information on this site
    Thanks. Lismore Progress Association. Lismore, VIC. 3324

      Hi Val,
      Exciting news about your community research project.
      Our records indicate the Lismore AoH was established on the 26th July 1918 – beyond that we have very little information. We would be thrilled for any updates to improve our database records.
      The AoH Team
