The plaque commemorates the opening of the Dirranbandi Rural Transaction Centre in March 2002.

The Rural Transaction Programme was announced on 11 March 1999. The intended outcome of the Programme was to restore services to rural and regional Australia in small towns with populations under 3,000 people, providing services such as basic personal banking, phone, fax, post and Medicare Easyclaim. The forecast duration of the programme was for five years from 1999-2004.
