The latest building addition added a large blank wall at the end of the new agricultural pavilion was. It needed to be filled with something interesting. The solution quickly became obvious – a full wall mural depicting a typical farming scene in the Redlands. A mural artist was commissioned to undertake the task, and he soon produced a stunning mural which shows work on the farm, the farmhouse and sheds, the surrounding bushland, southern Moreton Bay, and Stradbroke Island in the distance. This typifies the type of small crop farming so common in the area and provides a fabulous backdrop the agricultural displays.
In the years since four additional wall murals have been added, each depicting a typical scene appropriate to the adjacent display. They include one of the Grand View Hotel in the Transport Display area, one depicting a printing business for the Printing Display, a logging and sawmill scene for the Timber Display, and a mural of the frontage of Mander Bros. garage in Cleveland for the Garage Display.
