Features

  • Anzac Avenue of Honour
  • War memorial
The Anzac Avenue in Guildford, Victoria is an attractive avenue of trees commemorating personnel who served in the wars. A memorial monument featuring an Honor Roll stands before the Avenue.

The Avenue of Honour consists of between twenty and thirty trees planted along an approximately two hundred metre stretch of the Midland Highway. The trees are a mixture of plane, elm and ash trees. On Arbor Day, 13th June 1919, State School students, members of the Loyal Strathloddon Lodge and local citizens planted the Avenue of Honour to commemorate their local heroes (source: Monuments Australia).

There is a fantastic Guildford Anzacs walk trail which can be found at guildfordanzacs.org.au. The walk takes you around the town of Guildford to the homes where the Anzacs lived, shows you who lived there and links to the information about the individual Anzac.
