Avenue of HonourPrint Page Print this page

An avenue of bottle-brush trees (Callistemon viminalis) commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two.  The weeping branches of the bottle-brush trees were chosen to represent the tears of the mothers.

The plantings were organised by Mr O'Keefe who lived at 19 Weinholt Street in 1949.
