Concrete pillar monument, surmounted by a white glass lamp which is on from dusk until dawn each day. The memorial is approximately 3 metres high. The middle of the pillar has white marble plaques attached, inscribed with a dedication and honor roll for the First World War. The memorial was unveiled on Anzac Day 1934. Names for the Second World War have been added at a later date and unveiled on Anzac Day 1948. Four decorative concrete columns sit on the corners of the pillar. The whole is positioned on two concrete steps.
