The Dayboro War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One.

A plaque was added at a later date listing the names of those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two. The monument was removed from its position in the school grounds and rededicated on the 11th November 2011.

The Dayboro and District Honour Monument to soldiers who fought in the Great War was unveiled in 13th November 1920 by Mr R.J.Warren M.L.A . The monument which is erected in the State School grounds on an elevated site overlooking the town, stands about 14ft high and bears the names of 49 men, 15 of whom made the supreme sacrifice.
