Penshurst War Memorial commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have served in all wars and conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The War Memorial is a paved floor with central altar of polished granite featuring the cross of St George. Two granite sentinals each end show an old digger disappearing, and the other a young Afghanistan digger emerging.  The four pylons show the  ARMY, NAVY, RAAF and Women's Services.
