The viewing platform commemorates Chris Mainwairing's contribution to sport in Geraldton and Western Australia.

Mainwaring, a former AFL player with the West Coast Eagles, collapsed and died at his home in 2007. The wingman played 201 games for the Eagles, making his debut in the club’s first game in the AFL in 1987 and retiring in 1999. He won two premierships with West Coast, in 1992 and 1994 and was named an All-Australian in 1991 and 1996. After his retirement, he joined Channel Seven in Perth as a sports reporter and weekend sports newsreader.
