The War Memorial commemorates those who have died in service or have been killed in action in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial consists of three black granite arches on grey terrazzo plinth mounted on tiled concrete base. The memorial is located opposite the Ballina R.S.L. Club.

In 2015, the memorial was relocated within the Memorial Park in Grant Street.
