The band rotunda was erected in 1888 to commemorate the jubilee of Queen Victoria`s reign.

In 1901, the rotunda was lifted 8 feet off the ground, to allow the construction of a brick base designed by G. Garson, Shire Engineer in 1900-1901, to accommodate additional fire brigade equipment.

The Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria was celebrated on 20 June 1887 on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of her accession on 20 June 1837. It was celebrated with a banquet to which 50 European kings and princes were invited.
