The monument commemorates the exploration journey of John Oxley and his party in 1818.  Oxley and his 15 men crossed the Manning River on the 22 October 1818 having stayed here from the 19 October.

The information boards tell a summary of both of his expeditions and his life to find the inland sea, how Harrington Village  was started and the naming of the  Manning River which Oxley called a Lake.
