The Vietnam Memorial Avenue of Honour, along the Murray Valley Highway adjacent the Army Barracks at Bandiana, was created to commemorate those who served, suffered and sacrificed during the Vietnam conflict (1962 – 1975*).
Bandiana is south-east of Wodonga.
This section of the Murray Valley Highway is also known as ANZAC Parade
This Vietnam Memorial Avenue of Honour, was opened on November 11th 1991, by the then Mayor of Wodonga, Les Boyers.
In November 2022, the well-established Pin Oaks (Quercus palustris), make an impressive statement, lining the verges and the median strip of the divided highway.
