Portrait bust commemorates country music singer, Stan Coster who was born May 27, 1930, in Casino, New South Wales and died, March 25, 1997, at Manilla, New South Wales.

The power of the Stan Coster pen produced 161 titles, from age 25 in 1956 to the end of his life. Stan introduced his writing to Slim Dusty at Longreach, Queensland. Slim`s first recording of a Coster composition was in January 1962 - "Return Of The Stockman". Stan`s premier success was as a writer of bush ballads sung by other top acts. Well over 100 Coster titles have been recorded this way; from Slim Dusty to Johnny Chester.
