Description / Background

The memorial is a stone column, topped with an orb. It stands on a two-stepped, polished stone plinth, which is inscribed with dedications and honour rolls for wars in which Australia has been involved. The whole stands atop a three-stepped platform. A series of pillars joined by rails and chains form a fence around the memorial. A separate dedication plaque is attached to one of the pillars. 

The memorial was unveiled at a well-attended ceremony on 14 November 1925. The column was unveiled by Mrs Burton and the fence was unveiled by Mrs Pepper, who had donated it. The dedications were performed by General J. Paton.
