The former Waurn Ponds Avenue of Honour is marked by a cairn and a plaque unveiled on the 4th July 1999 in the Waurn Ponds Memorial Reserve.  

The plaque records that the Waurn Ponds Avenue of Honour was planted in July 1919 to honour fifteen residents who served in World War One.  Thirty five trees were originally planted, but none no longer exist.  The trees all had plaques and they were all returned to the family members if known.
