The memorial was initiated by the Wentworth Falls community and designed by prominent architect John Burcham Clamp. It was originally located at the corner of Great Western Highway and Station Street and unveiled by Governor Walter Davidson in 1921.

It was relocated to Coronation Park in front of the railway station in 1984. Around the edges of the outer garden beds are set engraved plaques on concrete plinths commemorating local service men and women. The memorial is located within the curtilage of the heritage-listed railway station and is maintained by the City of Blue Mountains Council.
