Birdwood Avenue of Honour

​In 1936 over 100 Claret Ash trees were planted on William Street, Birdwood, as an 'Avenue of Honour' for pioneering Birdwood residents. After 77 years the trees had to be removed for safety and now a memorial to this history has been dedicated to remember the Avenue of Honour and the community spirit it embodied.

The memorial bench is located on the corner of William and Bleeze Streets in Birdwood.
