The memorial was originally erected by the residents of Mundubbera and District to commemorate those who served in World War One.  Additional plaques have been added to the memorial to commemorate those who have fought in other wars and conflicts.

The memorial was unveiled on the 27th May 1928 by Mr. M.J.Kirwan, Minister for Works. The proceedings opened with the schoolchildren singing "Abide With Me". Mr Kirwan in his address stated that 26 per cent of the men fit for service in the Mundubberra district enlisted and out of that number no fewer than 23 per cent paid the supreme sacrifice. The landing at Gallipoli was recognised as the greatest military exploit of history.
