Pyramid Hill Avenue of Honour

Avenue of Honour Address

Victoria Street
Pyramid Hill

The original Pyramid Hill Avenue of Honour was established in 1929 to commemorate WW1 service and sacrifice. Comprising a double row of Sugar Gums (Eucalyptus cladocalyx), this Avenue extended along Victoria Street, from where the current swimming pool is located at the eastern entry to the town, heading westward toward the intersection with Kelly Street.

At some time it was deemed necessary to remove the Sugar Gums.

A new Avenue of Honour was created in a slip-road median strip, directly adjacent Victoria Street, forming part of the RSL Memorial Gardens. The memorial gum trees form a double-row for the length of the two sections of median strip .

Left: a view along Victoria Street towards the township; Right: a view from the inner slip-road, creating the median-strip.

These brass honour rolls were originally part of the
Mincha Memorial Hall.
(Mincha is a township 9 kms
NW of Pyramid Hill)
Gated pillars at the eastern end are relocated from elsewhere.
Although these plaques are unrelated, they are now preserved as part of
the Pyramid Hill
Avenue of Honour.

The plaques at the western end of the Avenue came from the original RSL Hall. That building is now relocated as part of Pyramid Hill’s history museum complex.
