The Angophora tree commemorates the 50th anniversary of Rostrum in Australia.

Rostrum Australia is an association of public speaking clubs, founded on 21 July 1930. The original Rostrum club ("The Rostrum") was founded in Manchester, England, on 21 July 1923 and its first meeting was held under a yew tree at Greendale Farm near Manchester. The first meeting in Australia was held under an Angophora tree in 1930.  

This makes Rostrum the longest-running public speaking organisation in the world.
