Krambach Memorial AvenuePrint Page Print this page

The Camphor Laurel trees along Bucketts Way were planted on 30 August 1919 by the residents of the village as a memorial to their 46 soldiers who served Australia in the First World War. Most of the original trees still survive.

A memorial commemorating the trees and listing the names of those from the district who served in World War One is located in Leo Carney Park. 

Krambach Soldiers' Avenue. The tree planting ceremony in honor of the men who enlisted from the Krambach district took place last Saturday, in the presence of a large crowd of residents and visitors. The trees — 45 in number — were planted by relatives of each man who left for the front, and form an avenue through the main street. Substantial tree guards have been provided. Mr. R. A. Price, M.L.A., made a very impressive address — especially pointing out to the younger generation the great sacrifice made by the men who left these shores. He said that in years to come, when the trees have grown, they would be able to look up to them, and recall the fact that they were planted in honor of men who had helped to give them their freedom. Councillor Hugh McKinnon, in the course of an address, stated that all the eligible men of Krambach district had enlisted. Thirteen out of fourteen Gallagher's had served at the front— the fourteenth being rejected after three attempts to get away.
