Aramac War Memorial is a tall and stark monument of Ulam (Queensland) marble. A life sized statue of an Australian infantryman stands at ease at the top of a tall obelisk. The obelisk has a leaded AIF badge and the dates of the war on the front base. The pedestal beneath bears the leaded names of the 132 men who served in World War One from the shire, including fifteen dead and eleven wounded, whose names are recorded on the front face.
The War Memorial Committee entered into a contract with monumental mason, Mr F.M.Allen of Rockhampton to erect a war memorial at the cost of £580. The memorial was unveiled by the Chairman of the Aramac Shire Council on the 12th April 1924.
