Hughenden District Soldiers Memorial Rotunda is dedicated to the soldiers of World War One.

Built in 1932, by the Hughenden District Soldiers’ Memorial Fund. This rotunda and drinking fountain commemorated soldiers from World War One.  Services were held at this rotunda with a street parade until 1956, when a new Memorial was built in conjunction with the Hughenden Memorial Pool and opened in September 1956.
