“For every soldier a tree, for every tree a plaque”
The Soldier’s Memorial Avenue forms part of the Queens Domain in Hobart Tasmania. It is an Avenue of Honour comprising 520 trees planted in 1918 and 1919 to commemorate soldiers, mainly from Hobart, who died in World War I (the Great War) 1914–1918. Additional trees were added in the Soldiers Memorial Avenue Extension in the Cenotaph precinct in 1926. In all there are 533 individually named trees plus one for an Unknown Soldier and three trees planted by dignitaries.
The Avenue was originally known as the Soldier’s Memorial Avenue but was renamed Soldiers’ Walk in the 1980s. It is the largest of over 50 commemorative Avenues in Tasmania that have been identified.
