The Memorial Avenue was planted to commemorate those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

There are two memorial light standards at beginning of the entrance road and a series of metal plaques set on concrete bases at both standards and continuing on both sides of the road which leads to the Launceston War Memorial Hall.
