The memorial was erected to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War Two. The Memorial carries fifty-six inscriptions with compass headings and distance describing World War Two activities which were pertinent to the Marlin Coast. The memorial was moved from Coastwatcher Park in April 2005 to the Trinity Beach foreshore.

A Plaque on the memorial states that Royal Australian Navy (R.A.N.) Beach Commandos trained on this beach during 1944.
