Soldiers Memorial Avenue tree planting to commemorate the centenary of the end of WWI

11 November 2018

On 11 November 2018, the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1, the final replacement tree will be planted in the Port Arthur Soldiers Memorial Avenue.

The Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority Community Advisory Committee are planning a short ceremony to acknowledge those Peninsula Residents who are commemorated in the Avenue or who lost their lives or participated in a military conflict involving Australian participation.

The Community Advisory Committee would like to hear from anyone who may have a military connection or a family member from WW1 recognised by a planted tree in the Port Arthur Memorial Avenue.

Should you like to be involved please contact the Committee at or Roseanne Heyward on 0448 503 333.
