Two obelisks either side of the band rotunda commemorate those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The cenotaph was originally erected to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War One and was unveiled by the Governor, Sir Alexander Hore-Ruthven in April 1934.
