Randwick District War Memorial commemorates Australian serviceman and women from the Municipality of Randwick who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One with plaques commemorating later conflicts subsequently added to the memorial. 

Sandstone cenotaph standing in a small triangular reserve, and the memorial displays dedicatory plaques and a bronze laurel wreath, and is accompanied by a flag staff. This memorial is unusual in that the names of over four thousand World War One veterans, inscribed on a parchment roll, are contained within the structure.

The cenotaph erected in memory of the four thousand men who went to the front from the Municipality of Randwick, was unveiled yesterday afternoon by Lord Forster, the Governor-General, who was accompanied by Lady Forster, and attended by Captain Mulholland, before a very large concourse.
