The Orford Avenue of Honour, comprises of Cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa) and Pine trees (Pinus insignia), planted in Orford in the 1920s in memory of those from the district who served in World War One. 

The avenue extends from the old road through Orford, south to the Hamilton- Port Fairy Road. Under the trees are wooden spikes with brass name plates. A sign was affixed to mark the Orford Avenue of Honour at a ceremony in early April 2002 and another avenue of trees with name plaques was planted on the other side of the road.
