Photographs supplied by Appin Historical Society

Fountain & garden constructed in 1970 by Wollondilly Shire Council to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the exploration of the east coast of Australia by Captain James Cook. A metal plaque is mounted on two boulders in a paved sandstone area. There is no fountain but there is a small garden. 

The plaque was stolen many years ago but was recovered and is now in storage. The plaque will be returned to its original position sometime in the future.
