The Biloela War Memorial was erected to commemmorate those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The monument was replaced in 2008 after cracking of the foundations and spire on the original memorial.

The new monument is in the form of a whale boat used by troops to land at Gallipoli on ANZAC day. Hedges form the outline of the frame of the boat and flagpoles on either side depict the oars in an upright position. The Transom is represented by a gate with two bronze rising suns. The stainless steel spire represents the Eternal Flame of Remembrance, and on the floor there are bronze plaques representing all the wars and peacekeeping operations that Australia has been involved in since 1845.
