Mont Park Avenue of HonourPrint Page
The Avenue of Honour planted in 1919 consists of a row of 46 Sugar Gums planted by returned soldiers who were hospitalized in 16 Australian General Hospital (Chronic Wards) at Mont Park. It commemorates soldiers who were killed in World War One.
Further plantings were made after World War Two. This avenue is unusual in that Australian native trees were used rather than the more common First World War plantings of elms and oaks.
