The murals on the water tower museum commemorate those who served in the Vietnam War. The Gunnedah Historical Society has identified more than 50 veterans who were born or have lived in the Gunnedah area.

Silo artist Jenny McCracken used an image from the war etched in granite on the Vietnam War Memorial in Canberra as her inspiration. This features the iconic Huey helicopters and group of soldiers waiting on the ground.

The second mural facing north will create a quiet place of reflection with soldiers standing at attention beside the Long Tan Cross.
