Transvaal Avenue in Maitland, NSW consists of 60 existing trees of various species. It follows a curved path from the entrance gates to Maitland Park at Eligin and Walker Streets, through to Devonshire Street.
The avenue was opened on 31 August 1900. A total of 107 trees were planted at the opening ceremony, and each tree was named for generals in the Boer War battlefields and victories. An account of the opening ceremony and the construction of the avenue was published in the Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners Advocate on 1 September 1900.
