Tintaldra Avenue of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The Tintaldra Avenue of Honour commemorates those from the district who served in World War One. It replaces the original avenue which was damaged by fire in 2020. 

Tintaldra’s Avenue of Honour has been a project of the Community Recovery Committee (CRC) since its inception and is edging closer to fruition with the help of three grants. About 15 years ago, Deodar Cedar trees planted to honour WWII soldiers were found to be diseased and removed. Then last summer, Ponderosa Pines planted during WWI were cut down after being damaged by bushfire.After the fires, the community considered placing a commemorative statue, made from the rescued timber, in the village. The timber however wasn’t suitable, so the CRC further developed the idea into an Avenue of Honour. Two rows of 10 October Glory Maples, set apart by a walking path, will be completed with interpretative storyboards and a picnic shelter, then more trees will connect Murray River Rd to both village entrances.
