The Returned and Services League (RSL) accepted responsibility for the maintenance and preservation of the plaques along Kings Park's Honour Avenues in 1922.

The responsibility of maintenance was delegated to the RSL's West Perth Sub-Branch, now known as the Highgate Sub-Branch.

The RSL Sub-Branch formed the Honour Avenue Committee in 1948 following the dedication of over 300 World War II plaques in Lovekin Drive. 

There are currently almost 1800 plaques along Honour Avenues in Kings Park. Further details, including photographs and location maps, are available via an online database.

Applications for new plaques

Dedication ceremonies are held four times a year for plaques approved by the Honour Avenues Group. There is a limit of 12 additional plaques per dedication ceremony.
The criteria to apply for a new plaque are:

  • The person must be listed on the State War Memorial in Kings Park.
  • The person must have died overseas on active service and is buried overseas or has no known grave.
  • The person must have enlisted in Western Australia.

Please contact the Honour Avenues Group for further information.
