The clock was presented by the Lower Herbert Lions Club as a project to commemorate 100 years of Lions International. 

In 2017, the largest community service organisation in the world, Lions Clubs International, celebrated its centenary. 

Lions Club International is a secular and politically non-aligned community service organisation of volunteers, who raise funds to meet local, national and international humanitarian needs. Focus areas include disaster and hunger relief, support for the environment, medical research, and support for youth and older people. There are around 1.4 million members and 46,000 clubs across the world.

In Australia, Lions clubs have been in force for 70 years, with the first club established in Lismore, New South Wales, in 1947. Lions Clubs Australia has worked tirelessly in the areas of disaster and emergency relief, medical research (including involvement in the development of the bionic ear and cervical cancer vaccine, as well as research into diabetes and childhood cancer) and community service (including drug education programs, programs for the visually impaired and children with cerebral palsy, as well as raising funds towards local parks, community centres and more).
