Anzac Memorial and Avenue of Honour


In 1948, at the suggestion of a few WWII diggers, the planting of some trees was undertaken along both sides of Redwood Road. At a later date inscribed bronze plaques were laid at the base of the trees in commemoration of the WW1 servicemen who lost their lives. Redwood Road became know as the Avenue of Honour, and now forms a lovely tree lined roadway which leads to the Cenotaph in Gembrook Park. The present Cenotaph was constructed in 1991 by members of the Gembrook RSL Sub Branch, however the original Cenotaph still forms part of the front brick fence of the Sub-Branch.

Gembrook Cemetery

Blackwood Lane GEMBROOK

The cemetery was founded in 1918 and is the second cemetery for Gembrook. The first one was established on Boyd Road in 1879 but proved too far for the towns people to walk so they opened one closer to the village. It is a very clean, peaceful and well cared for cemetery that has 5 generations of many local families. We have all denominations, ashes lanes, memorial rocks and crypts.
