The first war memorial to be placed in Mooroolbark was in 1987 at the Red Earth Community Park.

In 1997 this was moved to Hookey park and incorporated into a new war memorial, that included a list of all of those from Mooroolbark who served our country in time of conflict.  

The current Mooroolbark War Memorial was redesigned and revised in 2014 wth new names added to the list of Mooroolbark residents who served.
