Soldiers Memorial Park was originally established in 1916 to plant trees in memory of those who served in World War One. Trees were also planted in 1918. Additional trees were planted at a later date in memory of those who served in World War Two. This Avenue of Honour is located along Heritage Street and Dukes Highway, in Keith, South Australia.
The Avenue is marked with a ‘Soliders Memorial Park’ sign and each tree has an individual plaque at its base dedicated to a local person who served during World War One or World War Two. For a listing of all the people with a dedicated tree visit the Virtual War Memorial Australia.
