The Shire of Toombul War Memorial was erected in memory of those who served in World War One.

The memorial had replacement marble and sandstone panels inserted in the faces in the 1995 'Australia Remembers' campaign and the memorial 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 ".
