The Milang Avenue of Honour is located within the Milang Soldiers Memorial Garden and was established to commemorate the involvement of individuals of the district in all conflicts. This is located on the corner of Amaroo Avenue and Coxe Street in Milang, South Australia.

On July 31 1943 six trees were planted on River Street, Milang by the Milang R.S.L. to commemorate their “fallen comrades” (MILANG NEWS” Southern Argus 12 August 1943: 6. Web. 23 Apr 2020 <http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article96806437>). On Arbor Day, 29 June 1945, the local community and children from Milang Primary School gathered in River Street for the replanting of trees of remembrance in honour of the men who had lost their lives in World War Two. Ten trees were planted by relatives at this planting.

In 1999 the Memorial Gardens were established on the corner of Amaroo Avenue and Coxe Street, new brass plaques were made and 11 ‘Spirit of Peace’ roses were planted to replace the old name boards at the base of remaining pine trees (‘Milang remembers fallen” Times 22 April 1999: 2. Web. 23 Apr 2020 <http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article196913327>).
