Commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.  

It was unveiled on the 3rd August 1919 by His Excellency Sir William Irvine, Lieutenant-Governor and it originally was located at the corner of Main Road and Bridge Street.  It originally commemorated those who died or were killed in World War One, and the names of those who died in World War Two were added at a later date.

The memorial was moved from its original site to the Eltham RSL in the 1960s, but with the closure of the RSL in 2010, it was moved again to its present location.
