The memorial consists of a garden in a low wall and four walls connected by three modern metal sculptures. One wall bears the words 'In Remembrance' and has a plaque. In the centre of the paved garden is a single flag pole.
This memorial garden was refurbished as part of the Anzac Centenary.
This Garden was dedicated to the glory of God and in the memory of the men and women of the municipality of Rockdale who sacrificed their lives for their country in the first and second World Wars and subsequent campaigns.

The Gallipoli Rose
"It was magical when the flowers appeared on the upper reaches – not that we saw much of the upper reaches. But when we did, we were reminded of home when spring clothed the hills with flowers. The dead lying among them seemed to be asleep."
