The war memorial is dedicated to the men and women of Narungga who have served their country . The memorial contains an honour roll for World Wars One & Two, Korea & Vietnam and is flanked by the indigenous flag on one side and the Australian flag on the other. 


Narungga people have lived and travelled throughout the Point Pearce area long before the arrival of Europeans. To them it was known as Bookooyanna. Their campsites can be found everywhere, especially along the coast, where stone tools, food remains and old fire places occur in abundance. Indeed throughout the entire Yorke Peninsula, the Point Pearce and Chinaman's Well area contains perhaps the richest record of their presence.
