The monument commemorates those who served in World War One.

The monument takes the form of a rotunda with a plinth which contains the names of those who died in service or were killed in action, and those who enlisted, including 145 men and 21 nurses, all of whom trained at the Mooroopna Hospital.

The Mooroopna community contributed £1,100 to erect the monument which was dedicated on 25 April 1928.
