Plaque :

This memorial cairn was erected by the Seymour Sub-Branch of the Returned Service League to replace the original avenue of trees which were planted by the citizens of Seymour in 1917.  Each tree represented a District soldier who enlisted and served in the 1914 - 1918 war.  The carriage-way known then as Old Trawool Road was renamed ANZAC Avenue.

In 1982, to permit road duplication, the avenue of trees was removed, and by the erection of this memorial the Seymour Sub-Branch R.S.L. trust that the history and tradition of ANZAC Avenue will always be preserved.
