In 2012 the Inglewood War Memorial was cleaned and restored due to a partnership between Goondiwindi Regional Council Lyon's Club and the Queensland Government, as part of the Community Memorials Restoration Program receiving a grant assisting to finance the restoration of the memorial.
The original white marble tablets on the eastern face were replaced with replicas in black granite. The tablets and plaques on the other faces were restored and cleaned.
The restored Yeppoon War Memorial was unveiled in September 2010.
