This WW1 Avenue of Honour is located along the Ballarat – Daylesford Road, Dean, in Victoria Australia.
The Dean Avenue of Honour was planted in 1919 as a single-sided row of Oak trees along the Dean School driveway.
State School 87 has a rich history. It began life as Bullarook Forest Combined (Common) School in 1860, then in 1868 moved to a new site on Ballarat-Daylesford Road and was renamed Dean. It became a State School in 1873, and in 1911 the first Higher Elementary School established in Victoria.
Memorial pillars at the entrance to the school driveway, were erected by ex-students and residents and formally unveiled on 27th January 1951.
