The Memorial Lane Murals are a series of eight murals which gives Gympie a lasting pictorial memorial dedicated to not only the Australian effort, but more so the local community`s contribution to this nation`s involvement in conflicts starting back in 1860 up until the present time.

The theme of the final mural is the cost of war, and the artwork bears the names of more than 300 people from the area who were killed in conflict. The final mural was unveiled on the 26th January 2009.

The ninth mural titled Spirit of the Anzacs 1915-2015 was unveiled on the 24th April 2015. The new mural differs from the other eight murals by being three dimensional.
