The monument is a rectangular black stone water feature with an inscription below the badges of each of the military forces and is erected in memory of those who died in service or were killed in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. In front of the fountain is a plaque on a sandstone bearing the words "Lest We Forget."

Inlaid into the pavers on either side of this stone are plaques commemorating the redication of the memorial in 2002 to all those who served and a plaque commemorating those who served in Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. The fountain is flanked on side with pillard containing plaques of ex-service personnel.
