The community of Baan Baa has spear-headed a fundraising drive for a new war memorial, which was unveiled in early April.
The memorial was erected next to the town's community hall in Baranbah Street, and depicts service personnel and scenes from war. A plaque was also installed.
The dedication of the memorial was supported by the North West District Council of RSL Sub-branches and Parkes MP Mark Coulton.
The striking memorial was funded by donations from community members, RSL branches and local businesses.
Baan Baa Hall committee secretary Gill Hudson said future Anzac Day services would be "a bit more special" now.
"For many years we've always had a dawn service there for Anzac Day. It's always been quite a popular venue, so [it will] compliment that," Mrs Hudson said.
"It's so noticeable now; it's pretty amazing [what's been] done. We're lucky to have it there."
The powder-coated steel structure was constructed in Western Australia and transported to Sydney, then driven to Baan Baa. The plaque was made in Uralla.

Upgrades to the town's historic hall have also started as part of the federal government's Drought Communities Program.
Narrabri Shire Council received about $44,000 to build a concrete ramp for mobility access, install exit and safety lighting, conduct general repairs, and a fresh coat of paint.
However, Mrs Hudson is concerned the works will not be completed by the cut-off date of June 30.
"We're hoping we can get it done because we certainly can't afford to get it done otherwise," she said.
"Hopefully it'll work out [because] it's the focal point of the community; there's only the pub there. There's nothing else that keeps the community there.
"It's the only thing in the village, really."
The hall was built in 1923 and has been used for a variety of community events including parties, meetings, elections, and dances.
The building was first known as the Baan Baa Literary Institute Building before becoming the local hall.
