The Hugh Sawrey Walk of Fame was commissioned after receiving Q150 funding from the Queensland State Government.  The Sculptured Gateway depicting the horse Hugh so loved to paint with the rugged stockman on his back and the whip cutting up above his head, forms the actual entry to the gateway which leads to the new Kogan Community Centre.

The Q150 Community Funding Program gave Queenslanders the opportunity to celebrate and commemorate Queensland’s 150th anniversary. Q150 community grants were available for activities and projects that reflect the unique culture, heritage and aspirations of our diverse communities. In 2009, Queensland celebrated its 150th year.
