A monument commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

It was initially erected by the residents of Charleville and district and the Charleville Sub Branch R.S.S.I.L.A in honour of those who served in World War One.  All but the base of the Charleville war memorial is of Italian marble and was designed by George Gill who also designed the Esk war memorial.

Corner plaques denoting all war zones were added in 1993 and four granite ‘digger’ statues, representing a Catafalque party, together with eight dividing granite bollards were added to the memorial for ANZAC Day, April 2010.

The monument was unveiled by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Matthew Nathan on the 9th October 1924 during a Vice-Regal visit to the town.
