The War Memorial commemorates those from the district who served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One.  

The surrounds of the memorial were upgraded to commemorate the men and women of the district who served in all conflicts and peacekeeping operations. The upgrading, which was unveiled in 2006, includes a brick structure behind the memorial containing the World War Two Honour Roll.
