Dorothea Mackellar is once again the "centre of attention", a Gunnedah councillor says.
The late poet's memorial statue has been the focus of a disagreement since 2018.
That was when the pool complex was upgraded and the fence played "too close" to the monument.
Almost a year later, the fence has been moved back 2.4m after lobbying from the Dorothea Mackeller Memorial Society because of the "prison yard" backdrop and inadequate access to the statue.
Councillor Owen Hasler fought in the society's corner and at a recent meeting, councillors voted to use left-over pool funding for the relocation of the fence.
On Tuesday, Cr Hasler said it was an "excellent outcome".
"We looked at a number of options and we believed it was the simplest," he said.
"The iconic Mackellar statue will now be a feature of that part of the park, as it was intended to be.
"The fence and colour of the building [behind] detracted from the very important monument but now it will once again be the centre of attention, and rightly so."
Society president Juliana McArthur said she was thankful to the council for taking the society's concerns seriously.
"It's important to showcase our cultural icon," she said.
The floodlight will also be reinstalled and the surrounds will be rehabilitated.
