The Soldiers Memorial Tower is the central feature of the Young Shire Council Town Hall and Council chambers. A bronze statue of a Digger is located on the street-side of the tower at roof level.
There are several polished granite tablets on the outside of the main doorway beneath and inside the entrance foyer on which inscriptions and veterans` names are engraved. Four smaller plaques list separately those who died in both World Wars One and Two, with bigger plaques listing all those who served.
