An Avenue of Honour commemorates the centenary of ANZAC and those from the district who served in World War One. 

The path to the avenue is lined with rosemary and opens out to blackwood trees that form a circle with a plaque explaining the garden.

Lilydale’s World War One Memorial lists 16 local men that the village lost during World War One.The Lilydale District School has been researching the lives of the 16 men who are mentioned on the local war memorial, as well as their own family members who enlisted.

The Lilydale District School, in conjunction with the Lilydale RSL Sub Branch, received $4,000 from the Centenary of ANZAC Grant Program to develop an Avenue of Honour within the school. Some of the research conducted on the soldiers will appear on interpretation panels within the Avenue of Honour.
