Ravenshoe War Memorial includes a 'Digger' statue and was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. Plaques were added to the memorial at a later date to commemorate the fallen of World War Two and Vietnam.

The memorial was unveiled by the Premier of Queensland, Mr Theodore on a visit to Ravenshoe in May 1922. The memorial contained 28 names, 8 of whom were either killed in battle or died on active service.
