The Bunbury War Memorial commemorates those who have died in service or have been killed in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial contains the names of the fallen of both World War Wars and was originally unveiled in 1924. 

The memorial was unveiled on Armistice Day 1924 by Colonel N. M. Brazier, however it was not officially completed with the unveiling of the soldier statue on Anzac Day 1930. It was erected by the Bunbury Branch of the RSL with funds raised by public subscription.
