The Maldon Avenue of Honour, at Anzac Hill, was planted in 1916 to commemorate the First World War. The Avenue was planted with 70 Southern Mahogany Gums (E. botryoides) and Monterey Pines (Pinus radiata). Today the Avenue comprises of 53 trees, the original tree guards no longer exist.

MALDON, Saturday. An effort is being made locally to commemorate in a practical way the brave deeds of the Anzacs, and incidentally to improve one of the many attractive sports near the town. One of the sub-hills near of Mt. Tarrangower has been chosen as a scene for a tree-planting and pathmaking scheme. The pathway is to be of a winding course, and along the route trees are to be planted in avenue fashion. The site is to be termed Anzac Hill. The trees are to be planted to the memory of Maldon pioneers, and many residents have undertaken to provide a guard and tree for this purpose. A ring of trees will also be planted on the crown of the hill to the memory of Maldon soldiers. The track to the crown will he accessible by motor car.
