The monument commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved.

The central theme of the ANZAC monument was to put equal weight on the “NZ” part of ANZAC. The Australian and New Zealand troops fought together at Gallipoli thus beginning the story of ANZAC that has survived as part of the Australian culture for 100 years.  Penshurst RSL Club was one of only two RSL Clubs that had representatives of the Australian and New Zealand armed forces in their memorials.
