The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being

the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world)

and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory

and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.

In total, the trees represent 3912 Ballarat and district

men and women who served in World War One,

528 of whom were killed in battle

or died of wounds or disease.
