A monument consisting of a series of ironstone boulders in a semi-circular design, commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have fought in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

In the centre of the memorial is a beefwood sign and there are a number of plaques on individual boulders which commemorate conflicts including a plaque dedicated to Aboriginal Servicemen in all wars. There are also plaques dedicated to individuals. The area is paved with mullock gravel and a tiled footpath and is bounded by spaced wooden hurdles. There are three flagpoles behind the memorial.
