The Beaconsfield Avenue of Honour is located on the main road between Beaconsfield and Berwick. It was planted in 1929 after the First World War by the residents of Beaconsfield to honour the service and sacrifice of local soldiers.
Unfortunately many of the trees have reached the end of their natural life and need to be replaced. Some of the trees have already been replaced over the past couple of years by the City of Casey council. Another group of trees will be replaced during September.
The new trees have been propagated from the existing trees to preserve the botanical link to our past.
More information on the Avenue of Honour exists on the Beaconsfield Digital Memorial.
Several years ago the Beaconsfield Progress Association (BPA) researched, wrote and published a booklet titled Beaconsfield Avenue of Honour Servicemen Remembered to record all the known information about the people who served in the war and is available on this site as an online publication.
The City of Casey council has an article on their website outlining the replacement programme.
