Welcome

This year marks the Centenary of Anzac and the City of Ballarat, with the generous support of local institutions, committees, associations and individuals, will launch a mobile website titled ‘Honouring Our Anzacs’. This easy to navigate platform will enable access to the stories behind the 3,801 brave Ballarat men and women who fought for our Country’s freedoms during the Great War. This mobile website is designed to enable access to the information available for those who have a memorial tree planted along the Ballarat Avenue of Honour.

While every effort has been made to ensure the information on this platform is complete, we seek the support of those who have in their possession the stories and photographs of those along the Ballarat Avenue of Honour.

You can also upload your personal stories and photos to the Victorian State Government ANZAC Centenary website.

Upon completion of this mobile website over the coming months, the City of Ballarat will then expand this resource out to include the other avenues of honour within the Ballarat region.
