Front Inscription

Dockers Plains Memorial Avenue of Honour

1914 - 1919

Left Side Inscription

Dockers Plains

This plaque is to commemorate the centenary of the landings at Gallipoli, 25th April 1915 and celebrate the foresight of the then community of Dockers Plains in planting this Memorial Avenue of Honour for those who gave their lives or served in the 1914 - 1919 war.

The people of Dockers Plains refer to the end of war as 1919 rather than the mopre commonly used 1918 as it was not until then that the last men from Dockers Plains returned home.

The refurbishment and replanting of this plantation was made possible by funding from the Victorian Government and the Rural CIty of Wangaratta, the assistance of staff and pupils of Catherdal College and the people of Dockers Plains who initiated the project.

The plaque was jointly unveiled by the Honourable Tim McCurdy, MP - Member for Ovens Valley and Ailsa Fox - Chair of Administrators for the Rural City of Wangaratta, this day 24th April 2015.

We respectfully acknowledge the Pangerang as the traditional owners of this country.
