100 Years Federation
The Returned Services League has been part of Port Hedland for more than 70 years. In this year 2001, to celebrate the Centenary of Federation, the RSL elected to erect this Federation Rotunda to provide a place of shade and rest for visitors and the residents of Port Hedland.

Many distinguished members of the RSL have served and supported the community of Port Hedland, in particular Life Members Bert Madigan MC, Donald Blurton, Frans Spitteler and Jack Haynes. Jack Haynes passed away in May 2001 and is remembered for his outstanding contribution to Port Hedland over the past forty years.

The Federation Rotunda was funded by the Centenary of Federation State Committee-Western Australia, with financial support also given by the Town of Port Hedland Townscape Committee. The Rotunda was erected by KAT Construction. Donations and support were also given Total Corrosion Control who painted the Rotunda and Portside Fabrication who set up this plaque.
