Description

In 1917, 200 Pinus insignis trees were planted at Mount Xavier Reserve to commemorate boys of the Ballarat Orphanage who served in World War One. Two pipers played their bagpipes, and the first tree planted was by Governor- General Sir Ronald Munro Ferguson. The avenue was later named Arthur Kenny Avenue of Honour after the former superintendent of the orphage.

The avenue was re-discovered in 2014 and after many months of work by groups including Conservation Volunteers and Child and Family Services, the site was fully restored and an information plaque erected.
