The War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those from the Shire of Toombul 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 and the memorial now commemorates all conflicts. 

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 ".

They shall grow not 
old, as we that are 
left grow old;
Age shall not weary 
them, nor the years 
   condemn.
At the going down 
of the sun and in 
the morning
We will remember 
       them.
