A tower commemorates those who have died in service or been killed in action in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The monument was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. 

A start has been made with the erection of the memorial tower by the members of the Warrandyte returned soldiers on their recently purchased allotment overlooking the bridge over the Yarra--a very suitable spot. The structure is being built out of local sand-stone to the height of 25 feet on a base 10ft by 10ft. At three parts of the height a clock will be installed, and under the clock, on the base, a gun is to be placed in position.
