A monument commemorates those who served in the Vietnam War, peacekeeping operations, and other conflicts. Originally unveiled in 1995, it contained a white cross listing the names of those who lost their lives in Vietnam as well as a dedicated garden and lawn. On the 20th September 2003, brick walls were unveiled with mounted plaques and dedicated as Conflict Gardens. One of the plaques is dedicated to peacekeepers. 

Two brick walls with brass plaques mounted on them, either side of a white cross.  On the ground to the rear is a boulder with a brass plaque.

Note: In 2018, the Vietnam Veterans and Associates Club became the Wodonga Services Club.
