An arch commemorates the Cloudland Ballroom. The design is inspired by the famous neon lit arch. Panels feature historical images from the Cloudland site and ceramic ground tiles in the form of dance steps relate stories of people with memories of the Ballroom.

Originally called "Luna Park", Cloudland Dance Hall was a famous Brisbane entertainment venue located in Bowen Hills. It was demolished in 1982 and the site was subsequently developed into an apartment complex. On its hilltop site above Brisbane, Cloudland's distinctive parabolic laminated roof arch, nearly 18 metres high, was highly visible.
