Polished sandstone plinth supported by a tiled segment surround. The memorial is stepped up from the ground level and each side of the approach is generously planted with foliage and flowers. Dedicated to the Fallen and those who served in war.

The plinth supports two plaques: a main dedication plaque and below a smaller dedication plaque describing commemorative information.

The memorial is enhanced by a simulated 'Eternal Flame' set on a metal post to the right. It is further enhanced by a flag pole, which would be utilised during commemorative services.
