The Avenues of Honour project aims to commemorate all those who have lost their lives in military service to Australia through memorial tree Avenues.  By 2015 the project aims to document, restore, reinstate and establish Avenues around the country.  The project website it is the first step.  It includes a map of all of the currently known Avenues in Australia- all 570 of them.

The launch of the website this week and associated press coverage created a huge amount of interest.  Several new Avenues have been discovered in the process and many others are now engaged with the project.
