The First World War honour roll was unveiled in 1919 and was designed by a veteran. The names are painted around the centre arch, and the WWII are to the left. The Second World War panel was unveilled on Remembrance Day, 11 November 1949. The Second World War panel appears has a different lettering style and the sheet metal is retrofitted over the top of the paneled wall.

The arch has a rising sun in the centre with a coat of arms and flag below and bold gilded gold lettering signage 'Coramba District Roll of Honor' followed by the dates and list of names also in gold.

The Coramba Community Hall  was constructed in 1914 as a School of Arts Hall. It was formerly known as the Coramba School of Arts.
