Bega Soldiers Memorial commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The monument was originally erected to commemorate those who had served in World War One.  The monument is a replica of the Menin Gate in Belgium and was erected by a local stonemason at a cost of ₤2000.  The monument was unveiled by the mothers of the soldiers who had died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

Additional plaques have been added to the memorial to commemorate those who have served in other conflicts.
