Queen Elizabeth Avenue commemorates the coronation on Queen Elizabeth II on the 2nd June 1953. Two plaques were placed at the avenue to commemorate Queen Elizabeth`s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. 

CANBERRA (by telegram) — A mile long avenue of pine trees is being being planted on Norfolk Island and will be named "Queen Elizabeth Avenue" to commemorate the Coronation. The new avenue will replace the beautiful Pines Avenue that was an outstanding feature of the island until the war when it was chopped down to make way for an airport. Planting began as part of the Coronation celebrations last June, when the first tree was put in by Mrs. E. C. Robinson, whose parents, Abraham and Esther Quintal, arrived at Norfolk with the original Pitcairn Islanders.
