Port Elliot Soldiers Memorial Trees

Avenue of Honour Address

Murray Place
Port Elliot
South Australia  

The Port Elliot Soldiers Memorial Trees were planted on 22nd June 1918 with twelve Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) to commemorate the local people who served in World War One. Later memorial trees were planted for the local people who served in World War Two, Korea and Vietnam. This is located in the Soldiers Memorial Gardens on Murray Place, in Port Elliot, South Australia.

Wooden boards originally marked each tree with each soldier’s name and these were replaced with brass plaques in 1970. For a list of the individuals’ names and service history visit the Virtual War Memorial Australia.
