Avenue of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The Avenue of Honour was planted in 1918 to commemorate those who enlisted from the North Riding of the Shire of Mulgrave to serve in World War One. The trees once lined both sides of the street, today only a single line of mature Portugal Oaks exists along the nature strip on southern side of High Street Road, between Fleet Street and Baringa Street.

Funding of $5000 was received in 2018 through the Armistice Centenary Grants Program to erect a steel honour board near the site and conduct an unveiling ceremony.
