The Kings Park Honour Avenues Group (HAG) recently launched a new website paying tribute to service personnel who gave their lives while serving their country.

Three people walking down Marri Walk.The new site showcases their stories and supports family members to locate plaques and visit in person or virtually via the online database.

As well as incorporating the database of memorial plaques located along Lovekin and May Drive and Marri Walk, the website now also includes the Fraser Avenue Centenary plaques. These plaques recognise the Western Australian Centennial Committee of 1929 and dignitaries at the time.

Website plaque information, biographies, photos and map locations can be viewed regardless of whether you can physically travel to Kings Park, giving locals, interstate and international audiences alike an equal insight into the history of memorials in Kings Park and the work carried out by the Honour Avenues Group.

The new website builds on the previous version of the plaque database hosted on the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority (BGPA) website. The first Honour Avenues database of 1,600 plaques was launched online in time for Anzac Day 2015 after years of research and development between members of HAG and the BGPA website team.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden has hosted the Honour Avenues since 1919, which have been maintained by dedicated HAG members since the 1940s. The HAG is responsible for the maintenance and preservation of almost 2,000 plaques in Kings Park.

The Honour Avenues Group hold regular dedication ceremonies for new plaques added to the Honour Avenues by family members. Ten new plaques were dedicated during February and the next service is scheduled for May 2022. We encourage you to apply for a plaque if you have a family member who has not previously been recognised.

Further details are available via the Honour Avenues Group website.
