A plaque commemorates the John Septimus Roe's exploration of the area.

J. S. Roe`s most important piece of exploring took place in 1848, when as leader of a party of five, he explored the country to the south-east of Perth and the north-east of Albany. He was away for about five months and covered a distance of nearly 1800 miles. Though little good land was found Roe discovered coal in two separate localities, and also some excellent forest land.
