The plaque 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.

It features a central figure with troops landing on one side of the mural, and troops being carried away on stretchers on the other side. The mural is 12 metres long by 3.1 metres in height.

Most of the funding for the mural was raised by the Evandale History Society and Evandale Rotary Club, with funding also provided by the ANZAC Centenary Grants Program.
