The War Memorial is a clock commemorating those from the district who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally unveiled in memory of those who served in World War One.

In 1920, at a meeting in the Uki Hall convened by Mr. Alleyne S Loder and Mr. Charles Milsom, a local branch of the RSS and AILLA was formed. In 1922, Mr. Milsom, who had been wounded in action, applied to the Shire for permission to erect a memorial on a vacant triangle of land in the centre of the village. The memorial was paid for public subscription and unveiled in 1927. 

In 1947 the names of those who served in World War Two were added to the memorial and in 1974, a simple tablet in honour of those who had taken part in campaigns in Korea, Malaya and Vietnam was unveiled by His Excellency Sir Roden Cutler, V.C.
