Heroes Avenue
Jul 2021
Visited on Friday 23rd July. We went for a drive along the streets used by the diggers all those years ago, what a great way to honor their memory planting the local bottle trees with a plaque nearby.

A Great Memorial
Jul 2021
The line of Boab trees and the signs of rememberance erected shortly after 1918 was an excellent and clever way to rember those that had fallen. The trees, most one hundred plus years old were excellent as were thr brass plaques.

Rather unique memorial
Aug 2020
The avenue is lined with bottle trees one in memory of a local lost in WW1. The first is said to have been planted in 1918. Most of the name plates are no longer on the trees but all 93 names are listed on a cairn outside the Post Office

An outstanding memorial

A trip back in time to discover the local heroes. Roma has found a way to give the service men a dedication that can be read and visited anytime - there is a plaque under each bottle tree ... and you walk as long as you want as you can come back another day.

A very lovely tribute to those war heroes who sadly gave their lives during World War 1. Each tree is dedicated to one soldier and has a plaque with the name, unit they were attached to and the battle they died in. It stretches over a few streets and the bottle-tree lined streets look absolutely amazing.

There is an excellent information booklet that tells the stories behind the fallen men of Roma during The Great War. At each tree there is also a plaque that provides details on the soldier each tree is planted in honour of.

Worthwhile attraction
Jul 2018 • Family
The bottle trees along the streets and the plaques underneath them make a good tourist attraction. The information about each person is interesting and makes for a personal introduction to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country

Memorable Walk
Jul 2018 • Solo
A really beautiful way to memorialize and honor those who lost from Roma, who lost their lives in WW I. To read the plaque below each Bottle Tree displays the tragedy these young men endured, but their sacrifice shall always be honoured with the beauty that they have inspired.

Just always perfect

How to describe this wonderful avenue of hero’s? For visitors this is a ‘must do’ - for those who live here in Roma you have to have something blocked out on your calendar for Anzac Day and if you don’t- you should do that now - sobering thoughts for those that made the ultimate sacrifice- let’s hope nobody has to go through the turmoil of war again but I do think my hope is unlikely- avenue of heroes is a time to reflect and be thankful to those who gave up so very much so that we could live as we do
