Dedication

Front Inscription

This tablet commemorates those Aborigines who used to meet in this vicinity (then a Billabong of the old Yarra River) before the site was chosen for the Botanic Gardens in 1845.

A number of Aborigines were buried here in the old Yarra Banks during the late 1830`s. The course of the Yarra was straightened in 1900-1, and this lake system was developed
