Monument commemorates the place where his expedition landed.

Three ships the Lady Nelson, the Merman and the Prince Regent set sail with 44 military personnel and 60 convicts who were chosen for their skills and good behaviour and encouraged with the possibility of conditional pardons or tickets-of-leave after 18 months. This penal settlement was established in 1821 under Captain Francis Allman who landed on what is now the town green and hoisted the British flag on the rise now known as Allman Hill.
