The Lone Pine tree was planted in memory of those who fought in World War One. The plaque commemorates the planting of the Lone Pine by Eric Abraham in 2001 at the age of 103 years.

Eric Abraham was one of the last surviving soldiers of World War One. He was part of the famous Dungaree March that started in Warwick in south-east Queensland after a call for more troops from Prime Minister Billy Hughes following the Gallipoli catastrophe. He took part in operations at Villers-Bretonneux and Morlancourt, the Battle of Amiens and the advance to Peronne. He died in 2003 at the age of 104.
