Why is it significant?
Historically and socially, the Avenue is important as the World War 1 memorial for Kongwak. One of a series established throughout South Gippsland, presumably in response to the initiative of the Victorian State Recruiting Committee, it demonstrates the significant impact of the war upon small rural communities. (Criterion A & G)
Aesthetically, the Avenue is unique in the Shire for its mixed planting, which enhances the appearance and amenity of Kongwak and is an integral part of its identity. (Criterion D & E)
Scientifically, the Bunya Pine and the Turkey Oak are outstanding examples of their type in terms of their age, condition and size. (Criterion D & E)
