Gin Gin RSL Memorial & Community Hall commemorates those from the Shire who lost their lives in both World Wars. 

Kolan Shire residents have decided to build a £20,000 community block at Gin Gin as a memorial for war dead of the shire, and club rooms for returned service men and women. The building will also accommodate the shire council, and will serve as a concert and dance hall. Ratepayers will pay the cost, having pledged, themselves to a rate over a period of years.
Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser (Qld), 3 December 1945.
