The sculpture commemorates Harrold, who was a koala that died as a result of a dog attack in the Noosa National Park. The sculpture was unveiled by Noosa Mayor, Bob Abbot, and Australian Koala Foundation CEO, Deborah Tabart OAM in December 2003.

In June 2002, Noosa National Park Ranger Kylie Reidy rescued a large male Koala that had been mauled by a domestic dog. After listening to him chatter throughout the night she named him Harrold after Koala conservationist Dr. Arthur Harrold, who released wild Koalas into the area during the 1960s. Kylie tried to nurse the Koala back to health but, to her regret, was unsuccessful.
