Avenue of Honour and Memorial Park
The Geelong Vietnam Veterans Avenue of Honour was created in 1995, and is situated along a short section of the Melbourne Road (Princes Highway) North Geelong, between the North Geelong Railway Station and Mackey Street. After the opening of the Vietnam Veterans National Memorial in Canberra in 1992, discussion took place with the City of Greater Geelong and the Geelong Sub-branch to plant trees signifying a Vietnam veterans 'Avenue of Honour' and to erect historic hoop markers beside the highway to identify the Avenue. It has since gone through many restorations and additions which today stand as a remarkable commemoration and significantly, an informative but reverent precinct which allows visitors to learn, as well as pay respect to those who served in this conflict.
