Established in June 1932, Birdwood Park Avenue of Honour stands as a solemn tribute to the brave souls who served and sacrificed during World War I. Initiated by the Balingup Roads Board, the Avenue of Honour was conceived as a living memorial, symbolized by fifty-six majestic oak trees planted with reverence by local school children.

The Avenue of Honour holds a poignant historical significance, embodying the memory of those from the district who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. In August 1932, the Avenue was officially opened by Field-Marshal Sir William Birdwood, a distinguished military leader who commanded Australian and New Zealand forces during the war.

Things to do:
– Explore the commemorative gardens. Browse the interpretive panels for stories of local soldiers, the Anzacs and the 10th Light Horse Regiment.
– Enjoy a picnic at either of two picnic areas in Birdwood Park, one halfway along the Avenue and the other at the end of the Avenue by the Balingup Brook.
– Take a walk along the Avenue for an appreciation of the terrible losses to the community from World War I.

We invite you to visit Birdwood Park Avenue of Honour, a place of quiet remembrance and gratitude. Whether you come to pay tribute to the fallen, learn about local history, or simply find solace in nature, Birdwood Park welcomes you with open arms.
