Settlers Park was created to commemorate 100 years of closer settlement in Tara.

In 1907 the Harry Smith group travelled from Victoria to Tara as freehold land had been made availlable for closer settlement.  The group comprising of seven families are recognised by plaques surrounding the time capsule.  Later settlers are recognised with plaques near trees.
