Kingston Avenue of Honour

The Kingston Avenue of Honour is a beautiful and significant site. Visit in autumn to see the stunning autumn colours, or in spring to see the stunning display of green. The Avenue of Honour was planted by the Creswick Shire as a living memorial to those who voluntarily enlisted from the Shire to serve God and the King. Dedicated nine years after cessation of hostilities in 1918, the Avenue of 286 trees planted is a separate acknowledgement of WWI service from the recognition contained on the Creswick Borough Council Honour Board, erected inside the Creswick Town Hall.

A Harcourt granite monument, in the form of an obelisk, was unveiled by Brigadier-General H E Elliot on 18 December 1927 to mark the Kingston end of the avenue.

Daylesford Avenue of Honour

Driving into Daylesford you will notice the spectacular sycamore trees lining the roads. These tress reflect the seasons, with stunning autumn colours, the bright greens of spring, the bare branches of winter and the muted tones of summer.

The Daylesford Avenue of Honour was planted to commemorate the First World War in 1918. They line Daylesford - Malmsbury Rd, a section of the Midland Hwy and Raglan Street.
