The Hon Frank Sartor MP, Minister for Planning, Minister for Redfern Waterloo and Minister for the Arts launched this replica flagstaff on Saturday 7 June 2008 to mark the 150th anniversary of Sydney Observatory.

This flagstaff is dedicated to the memory of Bruce Reid [1922 - 2005] who had a lifelong passion and enthusiasm for maritime history.  The restoration of this signal mast was made possible through the generous support of the Bruce and Joy Reid Foundation.
