Description

The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is Australia's longest Avenue of Honour. It spans 22 km with 3,771 trees, each planted with a plaque dedicated to the individual men and women from Ballarat who enlisted their services in World War 1.
Originally, 23 different species of trees were planted and these were mostly the traditional ‘European’ or exotic deciduous species popular at the time, including different types of Ash, Oak, Maple, Alder, Birch, Lime, Poplar and Elm. Many of the original species planted did not flourish and new planting is mostly of the Quercus and Fraxinus varieties.
For a comprehensive history of the Avenue of Honour visit the City of Ballarat website (see link attached).
