Cooroy War Memorial includes a "Digger" statue and was originally erected in memory of the fallen of World War One. The names of the fallen of World War Two were inscribed on the memorial at a later date. A further plaque was added to the memorial to commemorate those who had served and lost their lives in Korea, South East Asia, Malaya and Vietnam.

The monument erected in memory of the fallen soldiers of Cooroy was unveiled on the 17th April 1922 by Senator Sir William Glasgow in the presence of a large number of residents. The monument which rests on granite foundations  consists of Helidon stone, with four marble sides on one of which is inscribed the names of the soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice. The figure of a soldier with rifle reversed surmounts the stone.
