The gates commemorate those who served in World Wars One and Two.

Plans for the erection of memorial gates commemorating those who fought in the Second World War were proposed in 1948, with work commencing in 1952. The gates comprise two grey granite entrance pillars, with cast bronze panels and ornamental work. 

The entrance pillars and bronze panels were designed by City Architect Claude H. Nicholas, with each pillar commemorating one of the armed services and a special entrance in honour of the Women’s Auxiliary Services. The original deadline for the work was ANZAC Day, 1952, however, only the bronze plaques were unveiled, with the memorial entrances not opened until ANZAC Day, 1963.
