The memorial takes the form of a column with a sphere surmount, pedestal and stepped plinth base. It is made of grey granite. The pedestal contains a number of inscription plaques and listing of veteran's names, inscribed with gilt lettering. The memorial is set in a grove of Ficus microcarpa var. hillii (Hill’s Weeping Fig), with brick paving and seating immediately around the memorial. The stepped plinth and pedestal provide suitable places for the laying of wreaths.
This memorial is located within Euston Park, a triangular reserve between Euston Road and Floss Street, Hurlstone Park. It was originally located within the Hurlstone Park town centre immediately north of the railway station. It is believed to have been moved to its current location in 1947.
