This memorial avenue includes several elements:
The memorial was upgraded to include an etched paver for every Fairfield resident who served in the armed forces from the First World War to date, and have since died. Each section is headed by a sandstone paver depicting the RSL (WWI), RAN (WWII), Australian Army (Korea), R.A.A.F. (Malaya/Borneo), Women's Royal Australian Army Corps (Vietnam), Merchant Marine (Non-Active Service - Reserve/and Post-Vietnam).
The paved walkway is flanked by rosemary and native perennials, with staggered seats opposite each group. The end of the Avenue has a Lone Pine grown from the original, and plinths depicticting the Battle Honours of the R.A.N., Army, and R.A.A.F. in which residents fought.
