In relocating and establishing the Pioneer Park and the SA Country Music Hall of Fame in 1995, the Berri-Barmera District Council preserved Australian Country Music history.
A hand print of each artist is placed in a concrete Guitar, with their name inscribed on a stainless steel neck set into the Guitar and each Inductee will write their signature on the Guitar with a wooden pen crafted by local identity Dennis Wutke from Riverland timber such as Apricot etc:
