The memorial is a single large concrete block, with a bronze plaque attached. The names of the servicemen from the Goulburn area who served in the Sudan Campaign of 1885 are inscribed, accompanied by a replica of the Khedive's Star medal from 1884–1886. More information about these medals can be found on the Australian War Memorial website.
This is one of a series of special memorials on the pathway from the Rocky Hill War Memorial Museum to the nearby Rocky Hill War Memorial Tower and First World War Honour Roll.
