The fountain commemorates the gift of Russell Park by W. A. Russell, M.L.A. and his services to the Dalby electorate. The fountain was restored by the Bunya Mountains Natural History Association in 1978. 

DALBY, September 4. There was a large attendance at the Bunya Mountains today, the occasion being the unveiling of the memorial erected to the memory of the late Mr. W. A. Russell, M.L.A. The arrangements were made by the Bunya Mountains Club, with Alderman P. Garrow as secretary. The unveiling was performed at Munro's Camp by the Minister for Lands (Mr. P. Pease), after which the visitors proceeded to Mount Mowbullan, where lunch was partaken of at the guesthouse. The monument, which was designed and executed by Mr. J. H. Shill (Dalby), is a carved stone obelisk standing on stone steps, the inscription being: "This fountain has been placed here to commemorate the gift of Russell Park to the people by the late Mr. W. A. Russell, M.L.A., and in appreciation of his services to the Dalby electorate."
