The War Memorial was originally erected by the Homebush Patriotic Association in memory of those from the district who served in World War One. Originally situated at the corner of Parramatta and Wentworth Roads, Homebush, the memorial was relocated and rededicated on the 11th November 1978.

Plaques have been added to the memorial to commemorate those who served in later conflicts. 

Monument characteristics:
Sandstone monument consisting of a pedestal with a tapering cylinder and orb at the top. The pedestal is made up of two tapering blocks, one placed on top of the other. Each face of the block has marble plaques with black painted lettering. The top block has a bevelled cornice and supports the tapering column on which two crossed rifles have been carved. The orb is attached to the column by a small curved pedestal with two carved rings directly under the orb.
