A 5.5 metre tall, 44 tonne steel sculpture pays tribute to the region’s history.  

The family-themed sculpture depicts the town’s heritage and it symbolises human figures – a father, mother, and child – to represent how the community is tied together by its customs and history. The sculpture’s figures are made from the old crushing rollers salvaged from the steel furnaces of Bundaberg Sugar when the Nambour Mill closed in 2004.

The installation was funded through Council’s Division 10 Capital Works Program, council’s Community Grants program and an incredibly generous donation from supportive community members Rod and Jan Forrester.
