Description / Background

This war memorial is a marble column, positioned on a marble pedestal. The pedestal sits on a broad square base made of concrete. The column is just over one metre high and the entire monument stands three meters high. The pedestal has several tiers, with each higher tier becoming smaller. The first, or lowest, marble tier contains the name of one Boer War serviceman and the names of 33 First World War service personnel. The second tier contains 28 names of Second World War veterans. The third tier is small and decorative only, identifying those Second World War soldiers who fell during the war. The fourth, or highest, tier is inscribed with the name given to the memorial at the time of dedication. The whole is surrounded by a decorative metal fence, a cement walkway, and a hedge. Two flagpoles are also on site.

Anzac Day services are held at the memorial. Every service has a member of the New Zealand armed forces in attendance, and both the Australian and New Zealand (NZ) flags are raised. A veteran, if available, is MC on the day and a serving member reads the Ode. Wreaths are laid for all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, for the NZ armed services, on behalf of the local council, the locality of Windellama, the SES, and Bungonia RFS. Attendees may lay a floral tribute in remembrance of family members and friends. The service is directed by the Goulburn RSL.
