The monument was erected to commemorate those who served in World War One.

The monument had replacement marble and sandstone panels inserted in the faces in the 1995 'Australia Remembers' campaign and the site and war trophy were restored and rededicated in 2002.

The memorial and war trophy were dedicated by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Matthew Nathan on the 12th November 1921. The "Diggers " Band played selections during the afternoon and a combined choir conducted by Mr J.A.J. Ferguson sang Kipling's "Recessional ".
