Killarney War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. The memorial was moved from near the entrance to the railway yards to its present location in April 1937.

The original digger memorial was destroyed in a cyclone in 1968, and has been replaced by a broken column. Four pillars support the top which features carved wreaths and rifles, which are crossed right over left, with no slings. Names on the plaques honour those who served in both World Wars, and a separate plaque honours those who served in Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam.

Those listed around the top section died in service or were killed in action in World War One.
