These fountains were installed in March 1984 by the Eureka Stockade Memorial Park Committee in recognition of the voluntary work and efforts of past members, who since the formation of this committee on 5th February 1912, have worked to transform this reserve for a wilderness of scrub and shallow diggings into its present state of a picturesque pleasure reserve.

"It has always been my ambition to see the Eureka Stockade - that most historic spot in the Commonwealth - preserved in an attractive way ; so we will never forget the national sentiment associated with the memory of the struggles of the early diggers,"
