The Barmedman War Memorial in the Memorial Park commemorates those who have served in conflicts that Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. 

The fine obelisk which has been erected in the Anzac Memorial Park, Barmedman, was recently unveiled and dedicated in the presence of a large assemblage. Mr W. Collier, chairman of the committee, presided and spoke from the base of the obelisk. The other speakers took their stand on a lorry which had been provided nearby, draped with Union Jacks. 

The obelisk is erected in the centre of the park, and stands 16 feet high. It is a very handsome structure, of beautiful dark polished marble. There are three flights of steps to the base which are in granite. The names of the soldiers are inscribed on three sides of the obelisk, those who made the supreme sacrifice being on the western outlook, facing the main street of the town.
