Reinforced concrete obelisk on a base of the same material. Each of the four faces bear white marble panels, inscribed with names and dedications inlaid with lead. On the pedimental cap, also inlaid with lead, is a design of crossed guns, the Union Jack and the Australian flag. From the base to the apex, the obelisk measures aproximately 4.8 metres. The monument is surrounded by a wrought iron fence, set between eight decorative concrete posts. The concept designer and builder was W. Larcombe and Son of Dubbo.
Attached to one side of the base is a Second World War honour roll for the Westella district, unveiled at the local hall around October 1948 and at some stage relocated to the obelisk.
The memorial is located within the grounds of Wongarbon Primary School.
