  • Profile

    The Hall Avenue of Honour was established on 29 July 1919 to commemorate the local people who served in WW1. This Avenue of Honour is located on Victoria Street, Hall, in the Australian Capital Territory.

    This single row of 17 trees was planted on Victoria Street from Gladstone Street to Halls Creek. On the 29/7/1919, 17 trees were planted for each local soldier enlisted. The trees were selected by Charles Weston, Yarralumla Nursery, who, with Mr. S.Kilby, planted the trees. Three local men died in WW1. 15 of the original 17 trees survived in 1994 (Garnett & Hyndes).
