Description

An Avenue of Honour known as "Monash Avenue", defined by rows of Maple and Ash trees along Beaufort Crescent, was planted by the North Progress Association between 1916 and 1917 to commemorate those serving in World War One.

Monash avenue, along the Creswick road from Ballarat North, was officially named by Lady Peacock, who expressed the hope that next season's planting would be started at the Creswick end, and that the avenue would thus link up with Ballarat.
Argus (Melbourne), 3 September 1918.
