Visiting Dartmoor

Dartmoor is situated on the banks and floodplain of the scenic and peaceful Glenelg River.

In 1918, an avenue of Atlantic Cedars were planted as a memorial to those that served in the first World War. The Dartmoor Community and a local chainsaw artist, joined together to create nine tree carvings in the avenue of Honour, depicting service men and women in the army, navy and air force.
