Description of Work
The Centenary of Federation Monument celebrates the coming together of six colonies to form the nation we currently know as Australia. 

The Monument includes the Arch of Unity and a centenary walk which illustrates the region's historic journey and our shared path. 

The Monument features 38 plaques which each tell a part of the region's story, from a Ngarigo Welcome through to the Centenary celebrations. Plaques feature historical highlights such as the opening of schools and legal services, the first railway line, the region's participation in wartime efforts, the immense Snowy Scheme, and more.
