The memorial is a square seat made from pink granite, on a base of black stone. A bronze plaque is attached to the top face, which features military colour patches. Each side of the seat is inscribed with the memorial's name.
The seat was originally dedicated on 31 January 1982, in honour of those who served in the Second World War. A new plaque has since been installed, which includes those who served in subsequent conflicts and peacekeeping missions. The memorial was rededicated on 11 November 2020.
The memorial is located at the Macquarie Street end of Martin Place in the Sydney CBD.
