Walk of Honour - ANZAC Day

Honouring those who have served and continue to serve our country 

ANZAC Day Service

As we approach ANZAC Day, join us along with Caroline Springs & Melton RSL for a special ANZAC Day Service to commemorate and remember those who have served and continue to serve our country. 

  • When: Sunday 23rd April at 10:30am
  • Where: Walk of Honour, Reflection Pond at Woodlea Town Centre

Walk of Honour

The Aintree Walk of Honour, located in Woodlea’s Town Centre, showcases over 180 trees and almost 150 individual plaques placed in a time-honoured way to commemorate the selfless men and women who have sacrificed and continue to serve our country. The Walk encompasses Australia’s war history from the Boer War until the most recent conflict involving Australian Defence Forces. 

Eternal Flame & Reflection

Stretching over 600 metres in length, the eternal flame and reflection pond mark the conclusion of The Walk, with the flame symbolising the community’s perpetual gratitude towards, and remembrance of, those who have given their lives and continue to make sacrifices in war.

Avenue of Honour

The Aintree Walk of Honour reflects the spirit of the famous Avenues of Honour in Melbourne’s West. Numerous memorials like this were constructed in the wake of World War 1 where families and communities mourned the loss of countless loved ones, to grapple with the enormity of grief on a global scale.

Significance of ANZAC Day

“Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day” – Australian War Memorial.
