Commemorates the timber and paper industries.

In 1936 the Government in Melbourne made an agreement with a New South Wales Company The Australian Paper Manufacturers Limited. It was agreed that if the Company built a mill in Gippsland to make paper pulp out of the waste parts of the eucalyptus trees in the forests, particularly around Mount Baw Baw, the Government would make sure that they would be able to obtain enough pulpwood to keep going for at least fifty years.

It was talked about in Parliament in Melbourne, and Parliament decided to pass an Act to make the agreement legal.
