The Darcy King Memorial Garden commemorates those who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial garden was rededicated in 1985 in memory of Darcy King (1921-1984).

The main feature of this memorial is a large V-shaped wall which encloses a garden. On the street-side several bronze plaques from the original gates and insignias are attached and on the internal, garden side a bronze laurel wreath and numerous plaques for deceased ex-Service Club members. In addition, facing the main road are three pieces of military equipment, one from each service arm: a ship's anchor, a field gun and an aircraft propeller.
