The plaque commemorates the 30th Anniversary of World Expo 88.

As part of the anniversary, the stacked Expo 88 "Australia" sign was unveiled on 26 October 2018 , with the large horizontal "Australia" sign unveiled by Ken Done and Sallyanne Atkinson on 28 October 2018.  The iconic signs painted by artist Ken Done for Brisbane's Expo '88 were unveiled in the historical village after an eight-month mission to save and restore them.  The signs are made from mild steel and were built as a short-term product for Expo 88.
