The Finley War Memorial commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The memorial originally commemorated those from the district who served in World War One and was erected in memory of the fallen from the district. Additional plaques were added to the memorial to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two and Vietnam. 

On Thursday, Empire Day, a large crowd attended (despite the fact that the weather was far from pleasant) to witness the unveiling of the handsome obelisk, erected as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of the district by Col. McKenzie M.C. At night a banquet, was held in the School of Arts.
