The mural commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved.

The mural was months in the making with the assistance of the ladies from 'Ceramics in Schools' who collaboratively designed the mural, conducted workshops, glued and installed the whole ceramic piece. Over 300 students contributed from local area schools as well as community members. The mammoth task of was coordinated by the Hay War Memorial High School Visual Arts & Photography Teacher, Miss Lanelle Lee Chin.

The mural was partially funded by the ANZAC Centenary Grants Program as well as some local organisations.
