A sundial commemorates the 75th anniversary and redevelopment of Centenary Place.

Centenary Place was designed and constructed for the purpose of commemorating the centenary of European settlement in Queensland (1824-1924). It is also important as the site of a public forum or speaker's corner during the 1960s and 1970s when political activism was increasing and public speaking spaces were use to promote public awareness of both national and local issues.
