  • Profile

    This  Avenue of Honour, consisting of 11 Oak trees, was planted in the 1920s in memory of the 11 men from Mylor who gave their lives in the service of Australia in Word War 1.

    The loss of these fine young men would have had a huge impact on the little village of Mylor, established only a few years earlier in 1891.

    With the passage of time some of the trees had gone, as had all of the accompanying 11 plaques displaying the names of the servicemen.  The surviving trees gave no indication they were a tribute to the sacrifice of those 11 men.

    The Mylor History Group recognised this loss and rejuvenated the Avenue, highlighting its significance to the community.  The work was completed in 2021, funded by a grant from Veterans SA and the assistance of the Adelaide Hills Council.  Plaques for each individual are mounted on natural rock plinths. Two replacement trees are planted, restoring the integrity of this living memorial.

    The WW1 Avenue of Honour was formally rededicated on the 18th February 2022, beneath the canopy of the row of 11 trees, attended by dignitaries, special guests, school children, members of the local community and representatives of 6 families related to those honoured.
