A monument at the site where the bodies of seven missing backpackers were found in the 1990`s commemorates the victims of the crime.  Five of the victims were international travellers and two were Australian.

Ivan Milat was convicted of the murders and is serving seven consecutive life sentences plus eighteen years. There is speculation that he may not have acted alone and may be responsible for more murders.
