Cairn and flagpole commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Federation of Australia. 

The Commonwealth Jubilee Celebrations of Federation in 1951 were initiated by the Commonwealth Government in cooperation with the various State governments.

The Queensland Government's contribution to the celebration was the Jubilee Art train which toured Queensland centres. The train carried 50 paintings from the Queensland Art Gallery and a model children's library.  The train visited Pentland in July 1951.
