On the recent 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, a significant community project was launched by the Governor of Western Australia, The Honourable Kim Beazley AC at the State Reception Centre here in Kings Park.

Kings Park Honour Avenues volunteers who maintain almost 1800 plaques in Kings Park. Photo: BGPA.The Remembrance Walk website, developed by members of the Highgate RSL branch, brings into the digital age information about the nearly 30 memorials located in Kings Park.

The website displays photographs as well as information about the significance of each memorial located in Kings Park. We encourage you to visit the Remembrance Walk website and enjoy a stroll through Kings Park and Botanic Garden viewing some or all of the memorials. You might also be interested in viewing our Kings Park Memorials Walk brochure.

The RSLWA (Highgate Branch) also maintains a database of the memorial plaques along Kings Park’s Honour Avenues. Kings Park’s poignant honour avenues are dedicated to the servicemen and women who died in service overseas. The Honour Avenues database can be viewed and searched on the Kings Park website, providing the community with an excellent resource to locate specific plaques along May and Lovekin Drives and Marri Walk, of which are home to more than 1,700 plaques.

The database features the life stories and photographs of hundreds of servicemen and women, from childhood stories and tales of enlistment and army training, to saying goodbye to Australian shores for the last time aboard one of the many ships travelling to Africa, the Middle East and beyond. More than 600 moving stories have been added to the database and we encourage you to take time and read about the lives of our lost heroes.
