Parkes and Districts Cenotaph commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

The Cenotaph consists of five polished black granite steles inscribed with the names of Parkes and Districts residents who paid the supreme sacrifice in four major wars. In front of the steles an angled length of polished black granite carries the names of the other conflicts in which Australia has taken part.
