Launceston Memorial Avenue

Avenue of Honour Address

High Street
Windmill Hill, East Launceston

The Launceston Memorial Avenue of Honour was established at Windmill Hill, on the 26/05/1962 to commemorate the service and sacrifice of local Launceston men and women who had enlisted during WW1 and WW2 .

The double row of mixed plantings of Chinese Maple and Cherry trees, draw the focus from the High Street entrance, west along the driveway to the War Memorial Hall.

Plaques at the base of each tree, represent some twenty or so service organisations that helped to fund the cost of the trees.
