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

The memorial was originally dedicated in 1949 in memory of those died in service or were killed in action during World War Two. In 1978, in the Golden Jubilee of the Shire, the memorial was named the Ku-ring-gai War Memorial and dedicated in remembrance of those who served in all conflicts. An additional plaque was added in 1993 commemorating the 75th anniversary of the World War One Armistice and the entombment of the Unknown Soldier in 1993.
