Avenue of Honour

Established in 2015, the Shire of Nannup`s Avenue of Honour was part of the national ANZAC Centenary celebrations.

The remembrance plaques along this avenue of ornamental pear trees honour those Nannup people who enlisted in the armed forces and did not return home.

Eleven Nannup people served and died in World War 1.  Eight lost their lives in France, three in Gallipoli.

Seven of our soldiers died in World War 2 ; One on the Thai-Burma Railway, three in Papua New Guinea, one in North Africa, one in Singapore and one in Pert before he was deployed.

Two airmen, serving with Bomber Command, died when they were shot down over Europe.

One soldier from Nannup was killed in the Vietnam War.
