Allora Shire Soldiers Memorial honours the fallen and returned of the district who served in World War One.
The Allora Shire Soldiers Memorial was erected by public subscription at a cost of £310. The memorial was unveiled on the 11th November 1921 by General J.C. Robertson. General Robertson then asked the mothers of the fallen to unveil the memorial. Amid an impressive silence the mothers pulled a ribbon and the draping flags fell to the ground.
