The Curlewis Memorial Gates in Hamilton Park, Curlewis, commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in the world wars. The two brick pillars of the gates are joined by a white metal arch.

The Tambar Springs War Memorial is believed to be the first memorial to World War One servicemen erected in New South Wales, and possibly Australia.

The Italian marble memorial was erected in December 1918, a month after the war ended. It features a sculpture of a young soldier which was restored in 2003.

The Water Tower Museum in South Street features two incredible Vietnam War murals. Silo artist Jenny McCracken used an image from the war etched in granite on the Vietnam War Memorial in Canberra as her inspiration.

This features the iconic Huey helicopters and a group of soldiers waiting on the ground. The second mural pictures soldiers standing at attention beside the Long Tan Cross. Close by the Water Tower Museum is the Rosewarne Public School Memorial, commemorating those from the Rosewarne Public School who served in World War One.

Remembrance Grove and Remembrance Wall includes a grove of trees in South Street that commemorates those from the district who served in World War Two. The trees were planted as part of “Australia Remembers” which commemorated the 50th anniversary of the end of World War Two.
