ABOUT THE ART

“Thankyou Society6 for featuring this image in you're shop”

The Avenue of Honour is the term given to a memorial avenue of trees and/or a Arch; with each tree symbolising a person.

The tradition, which originated in the Goldfields region of Victoria, Australia is an important part of Australian culture.

Most avenues are in remembrance of those who fought or died war, particularly the Great War - World War I (1914-1918), from the town in which the avenue was planted. Since soldiers were grouped by the place they were recruited, a military defeat often meant all of the men of eligible age from the town were killed in the same battle. Many of the avenue's trees include metal plaques naming the victims.

Many of these avenues now feature large, established trees and exotic species.
Although many such avenues have since been affected by development, the phenomenon is now recognised by the National Trust of Australia, in particular this Arch in Ballarat.

Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.
