Avenue of Honour Centenary

August 11 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Remember those who served at Bacchus Marsh RSL on Saturday 11th August, and celebrate the Avenue of Honour – Bacchus Marsh 100th Anniversary.

Walk the Avenue of Honour.
Participate in the Wreath Laying Ceremony.
Join the Procession with the Light Horse.

Bacchus Marsh is home to one of the world’s most beautifully cultivated Avenues of Honour.

First planted in 1918 with 281 Canadian Elm Trees, the Avenue is a living memorial created to commemorate those who served in World War One. Being one of the last remaining Avenues in the world lined with Canadian Elms, Bacchus Marsh’s Avenue of Honour is a stunning sight that cannot be replicated.

As the sun moves through the sky during the day and the seasons change throughout the year, the canopy of elm trees that line the Avenue change colour and give way to golden shafts of sunlight.
