The original Avenue was planted on the 26th of June 1918 almost two months before the Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour was planted. The trees did not do well and those that remained were consumed by construction of Lake Merrimu.

The Avenue has been re-planted along part of the Diggers Rest - Coimadai Road and a memorial erected at the Merrimu Reservoir Picnic Area.

A book has also been published with details of WW1 enlistees with a connection to Coimadai.
