A memorial garden has been established in the front yard of the Crooble War Memorial Hall. It features a flagpole and a large bushrock, surrounded by rosemary and other plants. A plaque is attached to the bushrock, detailing the dedication of the garden on Anzac Day, 25 April 2015. At the base of the rock is another plaque, which states some soil from the Lone Pine battlefield in Gallipoli, Turkey, has been "interred" in the ground. 

The garden and plaques were funded by an Anzac Centenary Grant, awarded to the Crooble Memorial Hall Committee for an Anzac Day event in 2015. On the day, some 500 people attended the function held at the hall. The grant also funded an update of the Crooble War Memorial Honour Roll and the creation of the Crooble War Memorial Anzac Centenary 2015 Honour Roll.
