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.

A wonderful tribute to the soldiers from Roma. Trees are well maintained. The Anzac Day commemoration ceremony where wreaths are placed at every tree would be something to witness. A most thoughtful way to remember those who gave their lives.

The Heroes Avenue is impressive regardless of the time of year, but for ANZAC Day it is truly amazing. You can feel the historical significance of the place and the meaning it holds for the town.
