The memorial sculpture "Spiral Ascent" by artist Graham Chalcroft, represents the flight of the Wedge-tailed eagle, the insignia of the Royal Australian Air Force and was unveiled as part of Ku-ring-gai Council`s Centenary celebrations. The sculpture commemorates Bradfield Park RAAF Station.

Bradfield Park RAAF Station was partly located on the site now known as Queen Elizabeth Reserve from 1940 - 1946. During that time, more than 200,000 members of the Royal Australia Air Force (RAAF) and the Women`s Auxiliary Australian Air Force (WAAAF) received training on their way to service in World War Two.
