Two white marble figures of an Australian soldier and a young woman adorn a granite monument. It is faced with a dedicatory plaque and a list of local men who gave their lives. The memorial also featured a tall column up until 1975 when a storm caused considerable damage, resulting in the subsequent repositioning of the soldier.
Above the veterans' names:
This memorial was erected by the citizens of Redfern to the honour and glory of the men of this district who gave their lives for God and King in the cause of humanity in the Great War 1914 - 1919
THESE BRAVE MEN HEARD THE NATION'S CALL THEY NOBLY FOUGHT. DEATH NOBLY MET. THEY GAVE THEMSELVES, THEIR LIFE, THEIR ALL, WHILE LIFE SHALL LAST WE'LL NE'ER FORGET. D.F.B.
Above the woman:
For God King And Country
Below the woman:
This foundation stone was laid by the Mayor of Redfern Alderman A. C. Isaacs, J. P. 2nd November 1919
